“For example, if seniors usually eat steak but then can’t afford its higher price, they can switch to something cheaper, like cat food — and the cost-of-living calculation would be ‘chained’ to the cheaper item — cat food.

There is no justification to cut Social Security benefits, No to throwing seniors off the fiscal cliff. No to a Cat Food Christmas.”
