  •  There you go: Shared Sacrifice. (4+ / 0-)

    Obviously, the only thing we can do now is cut Social Security by implementing Chained-CPI.  As you can all see, everyone has shared the sacrifice so far.

    Oh. Wait.  No, the best off Americans are still far ahead and the poorest Americans are still far behind. And chained-CPI will hurt the poor the worst.

    So: Shared Sacrifice = share your money with the rich by making the poor sacrifice?
