    is that those of us who are disabled will feel the CPI sooner than most because we will have been on Social Security and Medicare for an extended period than most people.  

    And most of us are already compensating because Social Security is not like working, in my case it less than half of what I was earning while working, so I've already cut to the bone.  As of now, I'm turning off my heat (it is 20 degrees outside) and living indoors with temps between 60 and 63 degrees.  I am the living dead, just waiting to die, but struggling every day until I do.
