So your cost of living is increasing, but your income isn't. Since the increase was intended to offset the increasing cost of living, is the veteran's net ability to pay increased or decreased???

You asked a question. If a stalk of corn grows to 6 ft. instead of 7 ft. does that mean it's been cut?
