  •  How about instead, REAL CPI reform.... (13+ / 0-)

    ... how about reflecting the real actual cost increases in the actual cost of LIVING.

    How about how property taxes have gone UP 100% in the last 10 years for my dad (82, on SS fixed income), or the fact that gasoline and milk and bread have all gone up 50-100% in the same time frame?

    How the people allow this FARCE of inflation calculation to continue is beyond me. It means the REAL INCOME of Soc Sec recipients has gone down over the last 10 years, if not longer. If the trend continues.... accelerated by this idiotic "compromise" idea.... every one of our retired American's will slip into poverty and financial disaster over the next 10 years.
