19. actually, to my astonished amusement, it does

I used $1,300 for a random example of a cut, but the chained CPI from 2000 to 2012 was 130. Which would make $1,000 grow to $1,300. At least according to this source http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/SUUR0000SA0

As for the other details, I don't know. I read on DU that Obama's proposal raises the minimum benefit, but social security tells me there is no minimum benefit. I think my dad gets $60 a month and my mom gets $30 a month. http://ssa-custhelp.ssa.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/254/~/minimum-social-security-retirement-amount

I know Obama's Catfood Commission proposed changing bends points in a way that would increase benefits for those at the bottom and cut benefits for those at the top, but I don't know if that is part of this proposal.
