I agree with what you are saying totally,and that is probably what will happen.So they have the seniors trapped into a situation with no way out .When I turned 65 I did not want Medicare, because I had good Insurance,but was forced to take it because of my age.This is not freedom. They force you on it and then want to take it away.Does this make sense? I also planned for my future with pension plan & 401K but the cost of living increased so much that is is out of control.My Medicare premiums for A,B,C&D are &400 and my medicine costs are $350 a mo.that alone is a large chunk of my SS check They make you take it then make you pay for it.does this resemble freedom?
Do you still have your Private Insurance? I thought that Medicare was your Primary Ins.& when you had Private Insurance, it could be used as your Medicare Supplement Ins., since Medicare only pays 80% and your Private Insurance would pick up the remaining 20%. Am I wrong?

That is exactly the situation we have now.Dont misunderstand me I think the wealthy should have to pay taxes like everyone else,if not the burden falls on the "middle class ".I think everything is so screwed up it can never be changed.Its not Obamas fault,he just walked into a bad situation.In the meantime,there are people struggling everyday just to barely get by.If the wealthy had their way , they would just starve us out of existence
To my fellow Dunlapian, I give you a "Thumbs Up", on your post. We both need more of this attitude in our County.
BTW, did you check out that local Dunlap topix article on "Civil War History", there was a site that had a audio book that H. Camp wrote about our Sequatchie Valley. I believe even old Willard would like to read it.

My private Ins would not convert to a Medicare supplemental ,so I had to purchase a supplemental which is $170 a mo

God Bless you my fellow Dunlapian, I truly hope you somehow can make it at 68. You are doing what a parent must do for their child.

<quoted text>I can't disagree with your Post, except for one thing...I think that we're in some kind of transitional phase and that it will eventually get straightened. I think it will have to, if the Country is to survive and I literally mean the Country, itself.
I don't know how long it will take or even if it will happen in my and your Lifetime, but I do think it will happen.

I've read stories about when we went from an Agricultural Economy to a Manufacturing Economy...the Industrial Revolution...and something like that is what I think is happening now.
America is resilent and if this doesn't work, at some point we will have to change course and go to something that does work. This all started in the 1980's and it seems to me that it's only gotten worse since then.
But, sooner or later, somebody who can change it , will...I believe. They're going to have to! I just don't know when it will dawn on Washington, what we out here in Main St. America already know. If we could elect the right People to Congress, it would speed things up, for sure.
I don't think anything is going to save us.Our country has to stay out of war for awhile first,and that's not happening as long as Halliburton is making a fortune off of it.Next we have to do away withe EPA, and drill our own oil.Then we have to create jobs here instead of with other countries.Social Security has been robbed for too many other things than what it was designed for.That needs to stop.Unemployment should not come out of SS, but should be paid by the employersAll of this would be a start

I don't want your pity..That solves nothing for me

I have tried everywhere.this has been going on for 10 years. I am always told she is not eligible for things as long as she lives with me .They take into consideration my income status.She could not even get free legal aid to assist with a legal issue.

With cost of living continually rising and then the gov garnishing daughters check I don't see any relief. I will soon have to take on a part time job in addition to my full time job to make ends meet

I have power of attorney and for 9 years I have been filling out papers with the Federal Student Loans to get them discharged because of her disability.The end result is she didn't qualify .No reason given even though she had 2 doctors statements.Now the amount if student loan is so much she could never pay it in he'd lifetimeTen years interest and several times they added $40,000 to pay loan collectors fees

Unlike most Libs, we working people pay taxes for these things. What makes us mad is that they take those taxes and give them to lazy bums that have never worked a day in their life instead of fixing those roads and bridges that are in such a state of disrepair now.
Let me clue ya, "we working people" include members of both parties, and "we working people" pay taxes for those things as well. What makes us mad is that they take those taxes and give them to oil companies, mega-ag multi-nationals, and Wall Street bankers in the form of gifts and subsidies, and they start wars of choice which cost trillions of dollars and untold lives.

And count it as part of their wages, which means they get less in their Paycheck to take home. It's also Tax Deductible for their Employer. Isn't that right, Pete? Just like a 401K Employer Contribution is, right? And the Employers' Medical Insurance Payment portion is, right? All counted in as part of the Employees wages, and all eligible for an Employer Tax Deductible, isn't that right?
That's right Sassy, it is tax deductible, which means I still have to pay 70% of it when and only when we report a profit for the year. Regardless of whether it is tax deductible or not, the fact is that corporations and businesses are paying half of SSS and medicare. That was my point.

they are talking about people that are at the age of 50 or less. It will not affect the ones who are on SS right now. I am not concerned about that since I am a ss drawer as well.
Well, well, well, why am I not surprised that you aren't concerned with those who are 50 or younger. Hurray for me and .......

I read that Obama endorsed SS cuts in order to please the Republicans and meet the budget No one has said who just said SS cuts
I believe this is part of his "proposal" for the 2014 Budget. As I believe he is putting the chained CPI on the table over the COLA. I really believe the Republicans will have to give up to much to make this happen, as they don't want to give up anything.
We shall see, I hope I'm right.

Of course you are also including Bill Gates, Warren, Soros and a plethora of others who are super wealthy and liberal
Do you think it matters what party they belong to ? Are you so shallow that you think party affiliation would make the truth less true ?
Oh....for a second I forgot who I was answering, of course you do.
