    1.  Whether using the chained CPI is good or bad
    2.  Whether the current CPI understates inflation by 7%

    My comment has nothing at all to do with 1.

    As to 2., which is what my comment is addressed to, the claim that inflation has been drastically understated since 1980 is, as I explained, ludicrous and it makes the Congressman look foolish to be citing it as fact.
