8. Got it.

I have never been one to criticize all that much what the Dems do in congress. But, if they allow the chained cpi to be used in calculating social security raises, then they are not worthy of their seat in office. Calculations should be made on the same scale as the "cpi" only. If, at the end of the year, the cpi says its 2.3%, then raises should be that. We have 535 reasons to be worried about what happens in congress. There are a handful of those 535 that you can honestly believe, i.e. Bernie Sanders is one. We are at a juncture where the Dems may win the house in 2014, but I think we need to take a look at our own representatives and make a decision if they best represent our interests or their interests.
