  •  Isn't it irrelevant if the CPI calc is changed,... (0+ / 0-)

    ...or corrected, if it means a reduction is made to SSI  recipients without them being made whole then it's a cut.

    I have no problem with correcting or refining or modernizing a formula. If the amount people receive is cut then benefits are cut.

    There are other items  that are changed as a CPI mod cascades through the budget.  

    I see no value or honor in waging a semantic argument over why a cut is made somehow mitigates

    I suggest you're better off to leave the marketing out of a useful  technical discussion.

    Eliminate the Bush tax cuts Eliminate Afghan and Iraq wars Do these things first before considering any cuts
