  •  I agree. Democrats can be relied upon to (5+ / 0-)

    turn victory into defeat far too often. We have to do our best to save them by putting up a stink about the chained CPI so that Dems realize they will be paying in 2014 for what they do today. I went to my congresswoman's office today to urge her through her aides to hold the line on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. I think people have to put pressure on Congress (and I think they are), especially now that Nancy Pelosi has come out in favor of the chained CPI. She's probably thinking she can change it in a couple of years, but we, the people should give up nothing. That's how we can save the Democrats.
     I think a good negotiator has to be willing to slip off the curve. It worries me that Obama caved.
