Yes, I admit that I have sometimes been a little over the top with my criticism of our [View all]

president when it comes to any potential cut in Medicare and Social Security benefits.

And there is a reason. I depend on Social Security in order to offset most of my medical and prescription costs. My check is about $650.00 a month and I have about $450.00 of monthly medical expenses.

My medical expenses have increased over the years far more than the COLA so any potential talk of cuts in future benefits really have a stark affect as we look out on our future bottom line.

Anyway, I could survive with a so-called "chained" benefit but I know there are millions of people who are far less fortunate than I.

So please forgive me if every now and then I get a little hyperbolic when it comes to SS and Medicare.

That is all.
