We have 56 Million Seniors in this country, they should

march on Washington and demand the system be changed,

so they can live better, say 10% increase every year, take that

out of Foreign Aide....

The increase was based on cost of living increases and is, therefore, an increase that is supposed to represent increased costs of living expenses. In reality, housing costs for many have decreased with the bottom falling out of the housing market and taxes and insurance going down as value decreased. My food requirements are small and I never eat out.

No Congress is going to provide a raise that feels good because especially the Republicans want to privatize Social Security so there would be no guarantees of any income whatsoever except according to the rise and fall of Wall Street - you know - the Wall Street whose hedge fund people gain no matter what and who gained the most from putting 401K savings in Wall Street - that plummeted during the Bush Administration financial catastrophe.

So, I think it's best to keep the present Obama administration in the white house since they are seeking logical ways to sustain the present guarantee system. They also plow savings back into Medicare. Even if the costs to up $7, the savings of no donut hole and no co-pay on preventative health screenings will balance it.

Thus our current Obama Administration will take care of us and will find ways to sustain Social Security and Medicare and have a system for those who come after us that will sustain them.

As we have often said here, increasing payments into Social Security for all income earned to the end of work history - and I think payments ought to be added from people like Mitt Romney who have no ordinary income and pay no Social Security taxes. That will take care of the system and not cost a dime to our debt.

No matter how much you make, salary or personal

wealth it should be 12% no limits, only if your retired.

You may want to take a look at this regarding Medicare and the Affordable Care Act from the point of view of AARP - the major lobbyist for seniors.

Well, their research is sound. You might want to look anyway and get some factual information instead of FOX sound bites.

Joe, many of the headlines you print come from FOX affiliates. They are sound bites. They come from commentators not research people. AARP is $16.00 a year. That includes a very useful magazine and many discounts.

I have the AARP sponsored advantage plan and it has been very good for me. They have excellent research departments and communications media. You can talk to real people at local meetings.

You certainly don't need to reach their research. I just find that getting the right information helps me frame my decisions and opinions better.

I am not sniping at you personally, ever. I do take exception to many of the headlines you quote because the headline is intended to create an emotional response and when they are not from a good, reliable source, it is better to find the factual information to make a response.

I respect you for the information you share and facing the challenge that is made to your sources, not to you as a person.
