I urge everyone to fight the reckless, unjust and immoral Chained Consumer Price Index budget legislation from ever seeing the light of day.

It is extremely cruel and economically insane to force seniors and disabled military people to pay for the excesses of others who have a lot more financial resources, and for a program of economic austerity that has no mathematical merit, and has only shown wreckage strewn all over the European countries, whose leaders have foisted this bogus plan on their citizens.

This is not only unjust and obscene, it is pure insanity.

I urge citizens do everything they can to discard this idea of a chained CPI, from ever becoming legal economic policy by contacting their representatives in Congress and letting them know how absurdly disastrous this notion is.
