    And I certainly agree - the CPI has been bogus for quite a while.  I think the reason people are so pissed right now about the offer is that it takes that bogus CPI and then goes even worse.  If anything, if he really wanted it to be more reflective of the needs of those to whom it would apply, they would end up getting drastic increases, and it would end up adding to the deficits rather than detracting from them.

      ...then calling it what it really is (identifying what is actually the current reality regarding social security) and putting it out there as a bargaining chip in order to then get more real revenue AND starting to close the loop holes the richest folks and corporations use...then he could actually make social security stronger.

      I'm still an optimist regarding Obama, but I must admit I no longer think he's so hot when it comes to compromising strategies...

      Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences.
