Chained CPI is the bright idea of Third Way, the Dem "policy shop".
Will the GOP vote no to a middle class tax cut if we go over the fiscal cliff?
Leave Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid out.
Let the GOP propose publicily what their cuts to these programs are. If the GOP will not make a deal unless these programs have cuts the GOP needs to say this loud and clear then pay the political price for their beliefs. President Obama needs to stop providing political cover for the GOP and their positions. It hurts the Democratic party in the long run, ie 2014.
If Social Security cuts in any form is not a GOP request, and the GOP does not request it publicly, then President Obama should not even entertain the idea. Period.
