Yeah...I got screwed next year.

BUffet came along and bought out my Lubrizol stock. No choice.....I had it for 20 years for the hefty dividend that kept going up and up and up.

Had a 60K gain on top of my normal income. Drove me up over the magic number and my medicare jumped to like 270 bucks a month. Same for part D. Screwed. Of course, I got a 1.5% increase in the SS, but after the jump, I get something like 11 bucks more a year, and you and I know that inflation is really 3.5 to 4% a year....

this year will be a lot lot lower..since my nice 6-7% CDs ran out and now i'm getting 1.5% on them......and so far no one has bought out anything I own.....

Medicare is still likely a 'deal' ......but not as great a one as it was last year.....
