    Somehow I'm sure it's Bush's fault.

    I know I'm only spending 1-2% more for gasoline, auto repairs, tires, food, clothing, taxes, insurance, college tuition, postage, beer, electricity, cable, ammo, and vet bills so it seems perfectly reasonable to me. :rollingeyes:

    official 1.7%

    Medicare part B increase will probably get most of it.

    That's the really sad part. That the government has cooked the numbers on the true inflation rate so badly. We are all losing ground.

    So, a possible 56 million people on the government teet are going to be voting to put more money in their pocket.

    Whats that thought that's so popular around here? Oh yeah: If you're on the take, you shouldn't be allowed to vote.
