    why would you want to support cuts now? Early cuts make later cuts easier.

      The first sentence in my comment:

      Again, I think switching to the so-called Chained-CPI is not a great idea on different levels.

      Then after you reread the comment. Read the link I provided.

      I'll be happy to discuss facts with you but I cannot do that if you don't know what it is I said.

      •  your argument was against a strawman (5+ / 0-)

        Here's your argument as I read it:

        "I don't like chained-CPI, but since no chained-CPI opponent ever proposes anything else, the chained-CPI supporters are the only people serious about the future of SS."

        Let's leave your strawman behind. You killed it. Yay you.

        Between now and 2033 there are two choices: cut benefits or raise revenues.

        Your choice which you want to support.

    •  That's a baseless claim. (0+ / 0-)
