  •  Unemployment is a short term recession issue (11+ / 0-)

    Retirement income is a problem of having enough money to last 30 or more years.  This is apples and oranges.  Just as giving a big fat tax cut to someone making $400,000 today has nothing to do with whether the Social Security COLA cut will have a devilish impact on someone 84 in the future.  

    This deal is not fair.  It is not balanced.  It requires an elderly person on a fixed income to subsidize short term unemployment.  It allows someone making $400,000 TODAY, someone with ample discretionary income TODAY to make not one penny in sacrifice to assist the person unemployed TODAY.  

    This is a deal to cut Social Security disguised as a fiscal cliff deal.
