A move to provide people on Social Security with a financial boost was stymied in Congress on Wednesday.
There will be no cost-of-living adjustment increase for Social Security recipients in 2011.
However, there was legislation pending in Congress to provide a one-time payment of $250.
The measure fell short of the two-thirds majority vote it needed to pass the House.
In the Senate it failed to reach the 60-vote filibuster-proof margin.
House Republicans said the possible cost of $14 billion was a concern.
