One Question Will The Chained CPI Effect More Than Social Security Or Will It Be Used

to figure the price of everything. That includes the need to raise wages. Are the politicians hiding the fact that the inflation rate in general will be used for this method and not just Social Security. Will they figure a different rate for general inflation? A cut in Social Security will allow the government to say that inflation is only 3% when it is really 8% when everyone and not just seniors have to buy chicken and not beef.
