... Social Security is rapidly become the only, the only lifeline that seniors have to keep their heads above water... Instead of taking on the retirement crisis, instead of strengthening Social Security, some in Washington are fighting to cut benefits...

Supporters of Chained CPI say it is a more accurate way of measure cost increases for seniors.  This statement is simply not true... Pure and simple, chained CPI is just a fancy way of saying "cut benefits."


At its core, this is a conversation about our values... We support the right of every person to retire with dignity.

Tell me again why this woman should not be running for President.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
