If you are on Medicare, you probably haven't heard about the Medicare B premiums scheduled to increase. These provisions are incorporated in Obamacare legislation:

2011 — Medicare B deduction, $96.40 per month; 2012 — Medicare B deduction, $99.90 per month (increase ate up the cost of living increase); 2013 — Medicare B deduction, $120.20 per month; and 2014 — Medicare B deduction, $247.00 per month.

Note how this more than double jump is safely past the 2012 November elections.

Who did Obama threaten when he wasn't getting his way on raising the debt ceiling? He threatened not to pay Social Security retirees, military retirees and federal retirees their pension checks. But this is par for the course with politicians. When California wants more money, who do they threaten to cut — education, fire and police protection! They threaten cuts that hurt the most.

Remember in November!
