    Chained CPI is about much more than Social Security, for a start. Second, the worst effect will be mitigated by exempting the vulnerable, which is why Obama's idea is endorsed by liberal think-tanks.

    Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.

    •  CAP and CBPP (0+ / 0-)

      Look at Center for American Progress and Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. They both talk about how chained CPI can still exempt veterans with disabilities, and the very old, or very poor, or those who have not accrued enough work by the time they retire. For better analysis, check CBPP.
