How Closely Do You Match the Purported CPI?

Summary:
Dbannist5 hrsShouldn't you include what we are comparing ourselves to? There isn't anything in the article to compare ourselves to price wise except the percent increase graph, which needs a $$$ or % component, not a percentage component for medical care alone. Based on your other article, I am well below all figures for the CPI, except education, and that's because we homeshool. This is including health care, and I do not get any employer or government sponsored help with it. I pay all of it and still stay below the CPI levels. I earn 60k a year and save half of it. Still have a mortgage too that I'll be paying off in 3 months. So I guess I don't match, I'm well below it.
