Shifting to "chained CPI" from the current inflation measure could reduce the federal debt by $230 billion, but it would also mean that seniors would get smaller increases in their Social Security payments each year.

Oh. so you were one of few who didn't have Bain Capital as an investor, eliminating all the pensions, by giving them to Romney. He made millions soaking up all that pension money. It used to be illegal, but Romney had great lobbyists.
I agree, Romney is scum, which is why I didn't vote for him.

I did say what ever I want and at this point it appears you are doing a whole lot of breathing too.

I am the one who helps make your pension check good and all you Obama supporting Democrats should have to live up to the standard the man you love said... you have it too good.

Anyway, all those illegals will be needing benefits (going into the trillions of $) and it would be far fairer to cut your benefits than some 75 year old. It's only fair.

They are 'Islamic terrorists,' in the same sense that those who attack pregnant women entering abortion clinics are 'Christian Terrorists.'
Because they only mis-identify the twisted individuals with a greater, spiritual tradition terms like this are meaningless.
