You Won't Believe This

Snopes.com is website that tries to correct the wild rumors that float around the internet. Currently, they are trying to correct a rumor that there will be no Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) this year not because there has been no increase in the cost of living but because Social Security is using that money to pay for an electronic medical records processing system! Of course, this is preposterous. It is hard to imagine how this got started accidentally but it is also hard to imagine why anyone would deliberately concoct such nonsense.

Actually, I could think of a couple of folks on this blog that would do that... anyone?

You really have to read the Snopes.com item on this to get a clear idea of how bizarro this rumor is.
