    Am sure glad that for the 34 years in my career, I never had to pay into that bogus system...it was doomed from it's inception!!

    I agree! We're screwed because this nation is too divided to agree on anything.

    That is EXACTLY what every REPUBLICAN thinks is good news. Less for the working guy/gal. Who they think is not working hard enough to begin with.

    It is amazing how easy it is for the very rich to get many poor and working people to cut their own throats!!!

    Hell with union membership in this country at a 70 year low I know how prosperous the New Year will be!!!

    eb, you are exactly right. None of those Politicians go to D.C. to help us. It is to line their own pockets and to keep their party in control. Bulge.

    I was wondering that too. Unless taxes went up more than the COL raise.

    The Medicare premium withheld from SS is income dependent. That means that ebsurveyor's income for the test year (2010 or 2011?) was high enough that they raised the amount of his premium. The premium increase is higher than the 1.7% increase in his SS.

    Like ebsurveyor says: "I couldn't stand the heat so I got out of the kitchen."

    Eb, You dont have to sign up for anything in medicare except Part A. It is free... I am on part A only, have been for 5 years ( as is every person of 65 years) and my SS is the max and always has been ( no deductions for medicare). I am on my wifes insurance where she still works. Now taxes is another thing and that depends on your income of course.

    ebsurveyor is correct. Im in the same boat. Ive been on medicare for some time due to medical issues. I too had a net loss this year also of $29.00. Yes I did get a 1.7 COL increase, but also with my income my part B went from 99 something to 142. along with a Part D $11.60 cost for the above, anyway it is a net $29.00 loss. I have my own RX plan but checked with my agent who said quote" you are a part of part D but your not." So I believe there is something going on between my RX plan and Medicare part D. I didnt have a choice on my health care plan either. Where the hell are you going to get insurance when you have health issues. The middle class slob does not have a chance. Tax the middle class and give the rich more tax breaks, along with the Oil companies. HOunddog41

    Curt,

    My 24 years in the military did't afford me the option to not pay.


    How did you avoid it my friend?

    I figured Galt would be the first incredibly stupid contestant, but did not expect HM, to be the first blatantly ignorant contestant.

    Many years ago(in the 50's) PA state employees had an option to not pay SS. Same for my father who was an employee of the PRR.

    State employees in lots of states don't pay into SS, that's not a newsflash.
