regardless of the inflation rate published by the feds, my personal inflation rate will probably be lower.

I used to think this also, but many 'experts' are now saying that the increases in health care costs will be higher than the inflation rate, and will make up the difference. As I understand it, medicare doesn't cover dental and optical. And basically Bush's pharmacy plan doesn't really work, so drug costs will probably keep skyrocketing, particularly if they block the Canadian drug lines. And the co-insurance premiums will increase higher than inflation also.
