The Real Cost of the Chained CPI

The author says that the chained CPI which the president recently dropped from his budget proposal would actually have been a good thing because of its potential to help with reducing the national debt. He notes that the actual cost to federal retirees from the chained CPI would have been less than the cost of a pizza each month and illustrates its financial impact for federal pensioners.
