28. The President is only diminished by the chained CPI by the ignorant

who believe Social Security is a-ok, who got theirs, who don't understand exactly what the chained CPI is, who would rather wait for a Republican president and Congress to strengthen social security their own special way, and who put their fingers in their ears and go "la-la-la" knowing damn well that there will be an automatic TWENTY-FIVE PERCENT CUT by 2033 in social security benefits if nothing changes by 2033. They'd rather take that 25% cut in earned benefits by then than take the 0.3% slower rate growth of the *earned benefits AFTER ten years of receiving *100% s.s. based on income.

Of course those continue to excoriate President Obama for the chained CPI don't bother looking at President Obama's track record of strengthening and lengthening Medicare AND strengthening, lengthening, and expanding Medicaid OR they believe that although he did these things for the other two, he'll do a 180 about face and focus on destroying social security.

Jezus . . . we are a nation of idiots.
