I am trying to import a medical CPI index using fImport.  The command I tried
MED <- economagicImport(query = "blscu/CUUR0000SAM", source =
'http://www.economagic.com/em-cgi/data.exe/', frequency = "monthly", colname
= "CPI").  It sort of works but it seems to have a problem reading the data
because it only returns data through 2007-11-01 when there is data all the
way to 2008-05-01.  If I go directly to the series at
http://www.economagic.com/em-cgi/data.exe/blscu/CUUR0000SAM, the entire
series is there.  

I am able to read the general CPI data from FRED using the quantmod library
getSymbols command but FRED only has a couple of CPI indicies.  Any ideas?
