    Count me among those very disappointed by the Presidents acquiescence with respect to Chained CPI. The Social Security Trust Fund has a massive stockpile in preparation for the next 30 years of retiring baby boomers. A small increase in tax, necessary only because people are living longer, would keep it in the black indefinitely. And yet, Social Security is once again being targeted by those who want to eventually destroy it.

    This country is going down the toilet... Things getting better? Yeah, right! Very soon Obamacare will be here and so will more totalitarian draconian laws.. and soon Obama will take away our rights and right to bear arms.

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, which is frightening.
