76. C'mon, emulatorloo.
Edited on Sat Jul-09-11 07:54 PM by woo me with science
Have you read the thread? Note this post:

She not only has acknowledged that chained CPI is on the table, she
went on record yesterday afternoon discussing her potential "line in the sand" conditions for implementing it:

"But she reiterated that any savings from changing the CPI would have to go back to the Social Security Trust Fund." ( )

In summary, well after the hearsay reports of the conversation with Barney Frank, she is on record discussing possible terms for implementation of this policy that supposedly isn't even on the table.

Take care, emulatorloo.
