Social Security checks to rise?
A look at past adjustments

Fox Business, by Brittany De Lea

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/10/2018 9:31:07 PM

The Social Security Administration will tell retirees on Thursday how much of a bump to expect in their checks next year, and some experts project it could be the biggest in years. The Senior Citizens League, a nonpartisan senior advocacy organization, forecasts benefits will jump by 2.8 percent in 2019 – which would be the largest increase in seven years. That is slightly down from the group’s previous forecast of 3 percent, but would still boost the average beneficiary’s check by $39 per month – and raise the current maximum benefit collected by someone who retires at full retirement age

I have aid into Socialism Security to buy Democart votes since I was age 12. I still have a lot of years to go until I get ´full´ benifits at retirement. And sure, it will not be whan I turn 65. I do know, uess I live to be about 112 years of age, I will have paid more into socialism Security than I will have recieved. Its nothing more than a Ponzi scheme and it is no comfort to me to kow that my retirement 401k will be far more important to me than the moeny I put into socialism security as a 12 year old. An increase to today´s socialism secuity recipents means less oney for me even though I still pay into it. ´m F......

But, will We earn $15 an hour ?

For years they have said SS would run out of money. So what did Zippy do? Give it to people who never put a dime into it and call it an entitlement.

For the younger people who say older people should have saved and put money in retirement funds. First, for the oldest, those things weren´t available. Second, a major illness will wipe out everything you own and then some.

$39 a month. It´s something, not much, but more than "THE MAGIC ONE" allowed, except for himself.
I began drawing it when I was 69. I get a bit more than the 100%, it helps. I did some figuring once, I have to live until 87 to break even. Meaning I´ve gotten back dollar for dollar everything I´ve put in. I´m not counting for inflation, if I did, I´d never get even.

I am like most of you who feel that whatever increase we get in SS, will be eaten up in Medicare premiums. I have been blessed not to need to use Medicare yet and it makes me mad that Blue Criss keeps calling about doing a home health care visit. What I don´t understand is, if I am not using Medicare, why do my premiums keep going up. There should be some incentive not to abuse it.

Now if they REALLY want to help seniors they would NOT TAX their SS. It was taxed before they took it out, why do they tax it a second time? And if you have yet to receive yours, and for some reason people seem to know nothing about it until their time comes, you are taxed by the Feds and the State (if your State has taxes).

While your point about #7´s post is taken, #18, "savings" and investment have always been available, even if only cash stuffed under the mattress or the cookie jar. And with the value of money on a specie standard, inflation was generally not a huge threat. I knew more than one that socked cash away for their "rainy day" or future. They made do on working class peanuts.

What must also be remembered is that at one time "retirement" was a family affair, with the eldest son often moving into the "homestead" while the elderly parents took the second bedroom, or attic. Meals were shared; generations grew together. The kids took responsibility for the welfare of their parents. And death came at home without expensive care. Different world.

A 2.8% increase doesn´t sound like much, and I hear a lot of sneering, but I could use an extra 50 clams paid to me monthly from a "plan" (i.e. a Ponzi scheme) to which I was forced to "contribute" for my entire working life.

So many euphemisms, so little time -- but We never had any choice in the matter. When Ronald Reagan proposed some much-needed changes to Social Security (which were partially implemented, thank heavens), Teddy the "Lion of the Senate" Kennedy and the Tip "the Tippler" O´Neill howled in the Congress.

As usual, President Reagan was right, and America is still trying to shake off the hangover that Teddy and Tipple left us.

On Friday morning Hillary Clinton responded to a court order forced by Judicial Watch to answer more questions about the setting up of her private server. Judicial Watch appeared in a DC federal court last month on a motion to compel more testimony from Hillary Clinton as well as to make public video recordings of depositions of top Clinton aides such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills. The court ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer more questions about the setting up of her private server under oath.

Mr. Comey’s anger, displayed via sarcastic tweets about the process, received a barbed response shortly thereafter by Mr. Gowdy. “And I was worried this wouldn’t be a dignified, open-minded search for the truth,” Mr. Comey tweeted Thursday in response to the Republican calling

"I gave loyalty to someone who truthfully does not deserve loyalty," Cohen told ABC News just days after being sentenced to three years in prison for campaign finance violations he carried out on behalf of Trump. Cohen said that while he has taken responsibility for those actions, Trump has not, and said Trump clearly knew what was going on.

But they refuse to fund building the wall and for border security on the Mexican border. The wall would significantly stop the flow of illegal drugs through the Mexican border to the USA, which would reduce the supply of illegal drugs that cause addiction and deaths by overdose. The Democrats and media support spending money to deal with the effects of drugs smuggled across the border but refuse to spend money to stop the smuggling.

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

EXCLUSIVE – President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations. The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.

Well, the new sex object for liberals – who hate the very idea of sex objects – is a cute young lady named Ocasio-Cortez, who is famed in legend and song for her extreme ignorance of the U.S. Constitution. (snip) How do you explain 100 million murdered innocents left by all the Marxist regimes of the 20th century? I know that liberals are all about love and peace forever, but I´m starting to wonder why they keep getting into murderous fantasies when another Reagan, Nixon, or Trump is elected POTUS.
