    The increases that Medicare gives you are few and far between to keep up with the cost of living. Something needs to be changed, thats for sure….

    The issue here is Medicare. You see Medicare Part B premiums are deducted from Social Security. Medicare Part B has been inflating at over 7%, on average, for the last 47 years. Social Security’s COLA for 2014 is 1.5%. There have been times when Social Security had no COLA. Many people have Medicare Part D deducted from Social Security too. That has been inflating as well.

    Oh yeah, Medicare is also means tested.
