Yippee! We're going to Disneyland...

Yep ~ that was a bit of sarcasm. I recently read that the increased cost of food and fuel are not 'factored' in to the cost of living figure that they determined this increase on.

I don't know about anywhere else but groceries here have gone up about 35% in the past two years. So I guess we'll all save on fuel because we can't afford to go the to grocery store?

I also recently read what Bellieg said about Part B rates going up and it will eat up whatever your COLA increased by.

Although we feel the pinch, we are sneaking by and far better off than many. My heart goes out to those that are only squeaking by.
