sure we are getting a 5.9% increase but how much is MEDICARE going up.we the ones on ssdi and ssi deserve another stimulus check we worked our whole lives for what.some of us can't get food stamps.prices are so high for food.medicine. I'm worried that by the time MEDICARE takes out their share we won't get much more money in our checks.living by myself on a fixed income is very hard by the time I pay my bills their is hardly anything left for food.I can't afford a car.car repairs insurance. so I'm stuck at home except for doc appts and grocery shopping I worked my whole life for this wow.im 63 and it's hard why are we always left out.

We went from getting $19.01 in food stamps and it went up to a grand total of $20.00 a month. My husband just went through cancer treatments and he needs extra food to gain weight. I've cut back on eating very often so he can have more food to eat. We can't win!
