    actually passes, I absolutely will NOT vote for any Democrat who votes in favor of this idea.

    I will also do whatever I need to do in primary elections and possibly even general elections to put any supporters of chained CPI out of office.

    That's just for starters my friends.

    The only trouble with retirement is...I never get a day off!

      I'm only 30, but I want SS to exist when I retire. Any type of benefit cuts will lead to people my age saying, "To hell with it. I don't even want the damn thing anymore." Of course, that's exactly what Wall Street wants, but it's hard to sell a program to people if they perceive that it's weak and a perpetual target for more cuts.

      I'll be letting my reps know that if they vote for this, they're finished as far as I'm concerned. California has a top-2 primary system, and not only will I refuse to ever vote for a rep that supports this, but I'll go out of my way to make sure they're kicked out of office.
