  •  I don't know why they attack the reps (4+ / 0-)

    Attack the concept of Chained CPI.  It's actually a very easy concept to explain and if people actually became truly informed on the concept its a terrible issue to win support on.

    I think some people think chained CPI means that the annual increase is chained to the benefit amount...i.e. higher $ beneficiaries get a smaller increase than smaller $ beneficiaries.  Sad.

    While there are a lot of proposals that might have some support the Chained CPI one seems like it goes nowhere if you truly understand it.  The 2-3% annual increases are hardly the the issue when viewing the totality of Social security benefits being paid out over the next 10 years.
