It was reported on NBC news last night that there is the possibilty that for the next 2 years, people receiving Medicare will NOT be receiving a cost of living raise in January, as they ususally do. This, of course, is due to the economic situation that the country is now in. I certainly hope that does not come about. People receiving Medicare are the ones who need the cost of living raises the most. I would think that the government could find somewhere else to cut costs, such as some of their political jaunts and travels and expenses that are paid for with taxpayers money. I guess we will just have to see how things turn out.
