Dear Editor:

Did you ever wonder over the course of your life, if you made the right decisions? Look over your right shoulder, they are there. Some do have dire consequences. While a plethora do not. One that I recall for a negative effect was smoking. I woke up one day and realized that I wanted to have a longer life. I threw that pack of cancer sticks away more years ago then I can remember.

However, there is one consequence that voters made this was election was on their choice in their vote for president. And this choice will affect your pocket book big time. Every one told us that this pseudo elected dummies in Washington would attack our Social Security Benefits. Well it is going to happen in 2014. In the April 5 TIMES NEWS, The Associated Press reported. The new formula "chained CPI" would have its biggest impact on Social Security. The Obama plan calls for reduction in Medicare spending, much of it by targeting payments to health care providers. "THAT'S YOUR DOCTOR and HOSPITAL. Now try to give them your Medicare card or find a doctor to accept that insurance coverage. Or watch your secondary coverage skyrocket. It all comes out in the wash. And don't forget you read it here first.

I TOLD YOU SO.
