  •  The conditions are great....UNLESS (7+ / 0-)

    you are the one who pays the price.  Unemployment benefits are very important, AND shoring up the trust fund is good...but if the cost is less per month for those who've paid into the fund all their lives, it's still not such a good deal.

    •  We all want everyone to get everything. (6+ / 0-)

      The Repukes have screwed up the economy so badly by their over-spending and under-regulating, something has to give. Social Security is my sole source of income, and I don't get very much. But I have a secure roof and enough to eat. So, if something has to give, I vote for unemployment insurance. The chained CPI won't change anything immediately. Between now and when it will kick in, another Congress can change it back. The economy is about to implode, and everyone is all bent out of shape over the chained CPI. What happened tonight was very frightening. We need a functional government, and it's questionable whether we have one.
