    but why assume that means a disastrous deal for earned benefits (entitlements)? The chained-CPI is a stupid idea, but it was off the table this time...if a "grand bargain" is chosen, then one that stimulates the economy with "smart investments" for education, etc. as commented by the President is worthwhile even if there is a bitter pill of "reforming" social security ...why? Because if we can get ourselves out of austerity - into a more thriving economy - we can politically fight for getting back those earned benefits.
