    Boehner will not include SS cuts like chained CPI in his bill because he knows that this is a perfect Rpug position to hold coming in 2014 and 2016. I can already envision the Rovian tv ads.

    A Dem politician, any Dem politician, much less the President, should never, ever, ever put SS, Medicare, or Medicaid on the bargaining table. The rpugs will use it to beat the Dems over the head in elections for years to come.
