the consumer price index, and it measures the price changes for various categories so let's look back in the past year. food prices, they're up 1.4%. energy prices, well, they drop by a tenth of a percent, but, you know, seniors, many of whom live on fixed incomes spend more of their money on healthcare, and when we look at medical costs, they are up by 3.1% in the past year so the pressure is on the seniors' budget. >> well, a lot of folks wore roy about the solvency of social security, especially those about to dip into it in the next five or ten years. should we worry? >> i don't want anyone to worry. look, social security is not going broke. the trustees who oversee the program say the trust fund, that's the surplus we have, always had lots of workers putting into the system, that the trust fund will be depleted by 2033, but it's not like there's no money after that. at that point, we have incoming tax revenue, which will cover just about three quarters of the
benefits scheduled to be paid out through 2087. the only good news here is that there are absolute fixes that we could use to help the system. for example, congress could increase fica taxes. they could also raise the threshold on which current workers pay into social security. they could also reduce the benefits or maybe some combination of all of those things. the bottom line is we can solve the social security problems. it's unlike medicare, which is a much harder one, but an i'm more concerned about people who don't really use the social security to their benefit, and that's why got a great post up today about when you should file for social security. go to jillonmoney.com. >> great information, as always. okay. live for us in new york. thanks, jill. for the second time in weeks, a tesla has crashed and burst into flames. this happened in mexico. the driver of this model s was allegedly drunk when he drove through two walls and then hit a tree. he was able to get out before
