    I think there's no doubt that chained CPI is coming.

    I love how he parses words - he said that he won't ask seniors to bear the 'entire' burden, as though there's something equivalent about having people who make more than $400k per year pay less than 5% more in taxes and taking away money from someone elderly who brings in $1,200 per month.  

    It's especially galling to have those making $1,200 per month sacrifice - or to make every American take an increase in the Medicare acceptance age - while those making $250k-$450k get their Bush tax cuts permanently baked into the cake.  You know who is going to lose out on this deal and it's going to be us.

    you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows
