    It's not like it's new.

      •  It's impossible, legally. (0+ / 0-)

        SS is legally an insurance policy on income. Higher caps means even higher payouts.

        Everyday, thousands of Americans slide into third-world poverty. Chained CPI just speeds up the rate of economic pain.

        If that what Americans want, that is exactly what they deserve.

        Denial is a drug.
