    I'm taking the President at his word, and I am pushing him to do the right thing.

    I also alerted the intern whose job it is to read his letters and asked him to talk with his boss about how inefficient a measure of inflation the normal CPI already is.

    The cost of food staples, for instance, already outpaces the CPI. Changing to the "chained CPI" would be devastating for seniors.

    While I'm truly happy that neither Mr. Obama nor anyone in his family will ever rely on SS for a comfortable  retirement, hundreds of millions of others will, and I think Mr. Obama should know that.
