    Changing to chained CPI would be bad, especially for the poor.  It should NOT be done.  To me, though, saying that SS would be 'gutted' implies that that benefits would be severely CUT, rather than having increases be less than they should be.  I guess this is semantics, but a Rethuglican could easily say that the word 'gut' is a lie, and they would not be totally incorrect.  I think we should be careful when using hyperbole.
