One thought on “Forbes Post, “‘Ubi Est Mea?’ And Social Security Spending”

  1. I think one cause may be that more SS recipients are being hit with taxes on their SS benefits at the same time they are seeing increases in their Medicare payments…the dollar amount used to determine what one pays (if anything) in taxes on SS hasn’t changed in a quarter century (!), and no longer reflects what the IRS laughably calls “substantial” income…also, the tiny increases in SS don’t seem to reflect real life that seniors see in their day-to-day life…and, of course, much (if not all) of that tiny increase disappears with the increase in Medicare payments…
