I don't mind my SS cost-of-living/inflation adjustments resulting in less benefits BUT, the govt had better make an equivelant adjustment to food stamp, cash assistance, medicaid, housing, utility aid for obamas 'po folks too. If the pain is not spread to everyone equally, then the shtf.

I guess Odumbo's trip to a PA small business made it clear that the $250,000.00 cut off for tax increases will bury small business.

Do you support them using the same cost of living inflation adjustment tool (the Chained CPI) to adjust income tax brackets? That will spread "the pain" even more equally in that it will raise tax revenue.
