    chained CPI cuts benefits. That is the point of it. Which is why reasonable people need to push back against it. Pointing out that the index used to determine COLA inadequately tracks senior expenses, and that chaining it will further reduce these too low benefits is a sad fact.
    That said,I understand that too many,including this POTUS,seem to embrace the idea that a chained CPI is a good idea. Shared sacrifice on the backs of the weak and the poor,delusional DC at their finest.
