If you believe every e-mail you receive regarding political related issues, you may be sadly misinformed. There are many people out there who simply cannot resist constructing misleading nonsense and sadly way too many people who accept the information without question and pass it on to others. These electronic chain letters are not helpful.
Here is a good example of misleading information. And information intended for political purposes. The fact is that the next year’s premium and deductibles are not known in time to print the Medicare Handbook; it’s been that way for years. However, the information was available to the public weeks ago. So there is no reason for any beneficiary not to know what’s happening, there is no increase in the Part B deductible or the Part B premium. [Dare I mention the information is on Quinnscommentary as well]
We should also be concerned that there is no increase in the deductible or premium when Medicare costs continue to rise at nearly three times general inflation. Are these premiums artificially being minimize for political reasons? I don’t know, but I do know the escalating costs of Medicare will have to be dealt with sooner or later.
Finally, as we all know the Social Security COLA is actually 1.7%. It hasn’t been since last April that the trending CPI-W indicated a very low or no COLA.
Can you believe this?

WHO IN THE HELL (W.H. TSAR) MADE THIS DECISION ABOUT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY TAX?
It is interesting how things work sometimes.
READ THIS CAREFULLY…..
Did you receive your Medicare Handbook for 2015 yesterday? If you have already received yours in the mail please turn to page 12 and go down to the bottom of the page and read to find out what you pay for Medicare (Part A and Part B) . It states that the premium and deductible amounts were not available at the time of printing. It further states you may call
1-800-633-4227 to get the most up-to-date info
I did just that and talked with a Medicare representative. She told me that they probably would not have those figures in until the end of the first week or possibly the second week of November. Now, let that sink in!
As soon as she stated that to me, I replied , “My, isn’t that convenient for the Obama Administration to actually hold off on those figures until after the 2014 election results.”
There was dead silence on the other end of the line. I told her thank you and that I would call back.
You see on our Social Security increase for next year we are only receiving an increase of around 1%. Even the military are getting just over 1%. You can bet after the November 4th election the increases for Medicare A & B will be greater than any 1%. That is why they are delaying what the increases will be. Because if they had put it in that handbook, any elderly would be voting against the Democrats.
So anyone voting for the Democrats in the forthcoming elections deserves to get the increases that are coming after November 4th.
