    just wasn't my point.  I should have been more concise.  As I mentioned above, I get bothered by the word cut if it is not used more precisely.  A reduction in the rate of increase might result in a cut in someone's buying power from year to year depending on where they live what they buy etc.  It will definitiely result in a reduction from what they would have had previously in terms of dollars if the same rate were to stay in place.  

    Again I don't necessarily agree that it is a good idea, I just prefer more precise language rather than the generalized "cut" because the Average Joe equates this with less money.  I would like to see more discussion of this...timing just kindof crummy.  I always prefer things stand or fail on their own merits.   As I  mentioned in my original post, if Congress contemplated this I'd like to see the max income ceiling lifted as well as some other items.    

    But again you are correct, my elder relatives don't have the luxury of choice.
