    here on Dkos, but I haven't seen anything about this

    It's is weighted toward spending of younger people. It under-weights medical spending, among other things, most of which occurs in senior years.

    SS should be based on CPI-E the cpi index for the elderly.

    Have there been diaries on it that I've missed?
