30. I agree, the CPI is a sellout

And I knew he would have to give something on entitlements but I wish he didn't do it like this. If he had to give on SS I'd rather have means testing.

I have mixed feelings on the payroll tax. I know people who are going to be hurt by it going up, but I see the argument for raising it because we want to keep SS solvent. I think my attitude is partially age-based: I am young enough that I don't expect to see a dime from SS, so I would rather have the bigger paycheck. I wish they would keep the lower payroll tax rate but raise the cap to compensate.
