8. It has nothing to do with tRump

Any COLA is automatic. It is based on the CPI-U.

If there is little/no inflation you get little/nothing.

If there is inflation, you will get an increase but as noted above, Medicare is real good at sucking any extra $ up.

It is not just "old white guys" that rely upon SS.

People that are disabled and have paid enough into the system may qualify as well as other persons, women included.
