'For those of you who are on Medicare, read the article below.
It is about the monthly amount of money you are going to pay into Medicare in 2011, 2012 and the huge increase you will pay in 2013. It's a short important article: You will pay it.
All who receive social security and Medicare have paid into the system for years. That is a basic requirement to be eligible for benefits. Think about it… if you started paying in at age 20, you will have paid for more than 40 years before receiving benefits. These are NOT entitlements or giveaways.
Out of respect for those who earned benefits, consider the following:
Our legislators are supposed to be representing OUR interests.
Congress will not allow an increase in the social security COLA (cost of living adjustment). However, the per person monthly Medicare insurance premium will be increased from the 2009 premium of $96.40 to $104.20 in 2010, $120.20 for the year 2011 AND Yearly increases to a wonderful $247.00 in 2014.
Congress also gave themselves a $3,000 a month Cost of Living Adjustment!
REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER 2012'
A two hundred fifty six percent increase in 5 years. Incredible!! It is time to get rid of the clowns and elect LEADERS!!
