Reading the list of items that makeup the CPI it seems to me many of those items are going up and going up significantly.

Medicine...WHOA!!!! Education... OMG! and etc. Granted a few of the items listed are not going up but then it is hard to understand why the government won't admit to inflation and give the retired folks living on that monthly check a bit of a boost.
