  •  What's your point (5+ / 0-)

    Chained-CPI cuts COLA increases in the future, which is why it saves money.  Study after study shows how current SS COLA increases undercorrect for the inflation most seniors face, since their health care costs are going up much faster than measured inflation.  Seniors are already getting short-changed on SS COLAs, so why would cutting them further be a bad thing?

    Why aren't you ready to join the chorus of protest at this awful proposal?  Your objections are unfocused and opportunistic, and make no policy sense.

    •  And guess what, (0+ / 0-)

      all this sturm and drang and fainting couch accessibility for nothing- the White House rejected Boehner's offer  this morning.

      •  Thanks for the good faith conversation (0+ / 0-)

        Characterizing those who are concerned about party sell-outs -- which history amply illustrated -- as drama queens only shows you have no interest in a good-faith discussion.  Your own dramatics when the president's intentions are questioned show that you are the one clutching your pearls.
