9. A lot of people are not aware that your Medicare payment will come out of your Social Security.

No problem when the majority of workers also had a good company pension that, in many cases, continued, to some degree, for surviving spouses. (Crazy? Check it out). If your Medicare payment takes too much of a bite from Social Security, and you have no other pension, you may qualify for a supplement through Medicaid. I hope seniors are aware of this.

4. Somehow I didn't get that much...

I got the equivalent of a cheap bottle of wine...per month...but the price of food went so high that I couldn't afford to buy the cheap white wine...just an extra potato or two...

5. I'm not in your position, so take this with a grain of salt

 

If I was unmarried, with no kids, I would get the wine every time - which would probably greatly hasten my demise. Now, I don't know your situation, but I wish you the very best in the future!

10. Are your kids grown? Even so, they may be well educated and still be "un" or "under" employed,d

I realize that from personal experience. Remember the days when kids expected to help out their parents in old age? Now far too many parents who've provided all they could for their kids and seen those kids seriously motivated to move on, STILL worry about their adult kids' future when they're/gone and have had to deplete any financial legacy.

12. Just wait until the TPP becomes law and the price of your meds go up by 75%.



Thanks, Obama.

26. One of the TPP's worst provisions

 

It will literally cost many consumers thousands more per year with the extra years added before the drug goes generic.

15. This is just one reason

Why 2016 is so important. We have to take the WH, and get as many seats in the House as possible, and possibly take back the Senate. I think it can happen, though we won't gain control of the House for some time yet. We have Supreme Court judges that will most likely need to be replaced, many, many programs that help those in need that republicans would gut in a heart beat if they took back the WH, and continued to control the Senate and the house.

We also need to take back our local and state governments. As long as republicans control the states there will be problems.

22. We have to take the WH with the *right* Democrat.

Don't forget it's a Dem president pushing hard for the TPP now and Hillary was involved with it as SOS.

18. It is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

If it ever does. I'm afraid these will be remembered as the good old days.
All because many chose personal comfort over fighting for change. Funding & assisting in Wall St attacks against reality instead of going to bat for those who cannot. In a world of forests, they side with the saws.

19. it is a scam for sure

A friend got $20 increase which put her $9 over the amount to qualify for Medicaid. She is living so close to the bone as it is, she now does not have money for co-pays and deductibles that Medicare requires. She has asked to refuse the SS increase so she can get needed surgery. No one has gotten back to her on that.

20. Goes to show what a farce the inflation rates are.

My costs have gone up so much more than the rates are reflecting, I have no idea what they are using to calculate inflation, but it certainly isn't the necessities of life.
