  1. Is Medicare going to get more of this raise. Every year I get a cost of living, Medicare takes more of it.

  2. One consideration that seems not ever mentioned is that while social security is based on earnings and years worked (which I have no argument with) the increase based on inflation is geared towards higher increases for those that get more to begin with. I think a fairer way to do it would be to take the average monthly check and give everyone an increase based on the percentage of the average. In reality the government in the current system is creating class differences.
