  •  As long as Chained CPI is in the 2014 Budget (2+ / 0-)

    People aren't going to back down from speculation to this end.

    You want it to end? Here's what would do that--Mr. Obama going in front of a camera/reporters, and stating unequivocally that the 2014 budget submission has been revised, and Chained CPI is removed.

    Until then, "sticks and stones" and all that. Seriously. I don't give a damn how much y'all want to mock this, there will be no letting-down-of-guard until that despicable line item is removed.

    This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

    •  Well at least this is substantive proposal, (0+ / 0-)

      sans all the fear mongering and empty rhetoric. Getting this chained CPI out of the mix is a worthwhile goal.

      Whether the tactics that have been employed actually advance the goal is another question.

      Nothing human is alien to me.
