Government lying about cost of living increase on Social Security checks to spend less instead of simply stop giving taxes away to foreigners and to dummies to breed more children they can't support.
My plan is to live each day to the fullest, who knows when your numbers up, I quit work and was
a caregiver to my parents and in-laws now they are gone. Supposedly, its my turn, that's when
life gives you a wake up call called "Cancer".
Your life changes in a New York minute, so I recommend you put yourself first, something
I plan to do in my next life..
Those of you who worked hard all of your life and are now contemplating suffering in your retirement, just remember all of the money you could have saved for retirement instead of buying drugs, booze, extravagant vacations, cars, RV's, motorcycles, boats, unnecessary electronic gadgets, vacation homes, expensive restaurant outings, or other extragavances. Think about how you voted allowing only 61% of social security benefits to go to retirees and only 53% to pay federal income taxes.
Think about it and then do something about it in the 2014 election and in your own lifestyle. There's still time!
Where do they get these stupid ****s who tell us how much we need to retire. Only you can tell how much will be needed for retirement. Sure if we all had money to invest or if we all got huge returns on our investments life would be a dream, retire at 65 and go on a permanent vacation, then you wake up and face reality. How you want to live after you retire will determine how much you need to have, nothing else will work. All of these experts have good advice overall for investing and such, but stop telling me how much I need or how there might not be any social security when its my time to collect.
In Maryland, the State Teachers Pension does NOT provide any health or other benefits. So teachers unions in each countywide system effectively take a hit in pay by having money that would otherwise be in payroll used to provide mostly-subsidized good health insurance to retirees of long service. The teachers vote for it every contract -as I did- because they know they will need it one day. At 65 it becomes Medicare Supplemental, prescription, dental, and vision insurance.
Consequently a benefit I barely gave a second thought to, when I left industry to become a teacher over a generation ago, is extremely lucrative now. And the way it's done for me - through the union and not the state - means its extremely unlikely it will ever be terminated.
