Pres Obama: David, in pursuit of strengthening SS, I'm willing to cut SS benefits [View all]

Finally, it comes from the horse's mouth.

But David, as you know, one of the proposals we made was something called Chain CPI, which sounds real technical but basically makes an adjustment in terms of how inflation is calculated on Social Security. Highly unpopular among Democrats. Not something supported by AARP. But in pursuit of strengthening Social Security for the long-term I'm willing to make those decisions.
