    Seriously we need to stop making laws that assume things about future growth rates.

    The laws need to be tied to measured growth rates in prior base the increase the next year on the observed growth in the prior year.

    And if you do that, tie the funding AND the payout to the same damn rate (so we don't get stuff like the SS payroll cap getting out of sync with the COLA increase)
