    Everyone fighting this reasonable change has only their own interests at heart, and puts their country, and their countrymen, second, if that.

    Your ignorance is refreshing. So pure, so exact, so precise. You are a true blank canvas that any elected official can use to paint their propaganda.

  • But let anyone also reasonably suggest.....
    FERS Fed
    ..... that those who have benefitted most give a little something more back and see where their country and countrymen really stand.

  • Chained CPI is total crap
    NormalDude
    Things cost what they cost. Substituting items in the 'inflation' basket based on assumed behavior is ridiculous. Let's say beef, milk, and gas go up 30%. So, you assume I'll eat discount chicken, drink water, and walk to work. Look, no inflation! Total BS.

  • Dude, I'm talking about what...
    FERS Fed
    ... the President is asking the Republicans for in return for the chained CPI.

    Hey Joe, After 10 years of war your telling people we need to sacrifice. Your GOP pukes put a little pledge to a Nazi Grover Norquist before country. Think again about definition of shared sacrifice

  • I'm curious
    Jeremiah
    ... about the NARFE calculator. There is no explanation given as to the basis of its extrapolations. Just putting in a dollar figure and choosing a given term period (e.g., five years, ten years, etc.) results is a displayed figure that is supposed to represent the lessened amount of annual COLA-based increases to one's civil service annuity, Social Security benefit, etc. that would result from a swich to using the "chained" CPI computation process. What assumptions is NARFE using, i.e., what projected COLA increase percentages are involved in arriving at the depicted lost payouts? It's impossible to determine whether the NARFE calculator is based on reasonable and realistic assumptions of future CPI increases or not in the absence of any explanation as to the calculator's underlying methodology.

    SO you idiot GOP math experts want chained CPI......Then institute CPI on prices you idiots. Nixon/Ford did it way back when and that was when they had a brain. Read your history first or are you a GW Bush leftover "Leave No Child Behind Act" We all know Paul Ryan is, after using Daddy's SS check for school. Hey is Issa going to steal Postal trucks too? Just a thought
