    But the 'cat food' meme has been around since pre-Clinton (Greenspan's 'substitution')

    This is not a new discussion.  And we have almost 20 years of evidence to back up our position... Before and after the cut.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

      but never explained in detail and directly connected to CPI methodologies, chained or other methods. this diary is a great example of that. with a title purporting to explain chained CPI for lay people, its just a mixed bag of myths and assertions.

      if there are good diaries on this subject that have been posted in the past I'd love to see them. i don't have a position on chained COLA yet, just lots of questions.
