What has become most interesting over the past three weeks, liberals (Democrats) are bickering amongst themselves. What happened to the old unified liberal position - "all for one and one for all"?

What happened is the Republicans- for once- decided not to cave and let the sequester happen. Low and behold- the American people found disaster, fire and brimstone did not follow and the Dems were caught with egg on their face.

President Obama's budget proposal is due out next week. We've already got a relatively good idea of what he's going to propose - more spending, more taxes, maybe some hints of deficit reduction. It also looks like President Obama will propose a statistical adjustment to Social Security's adjustment formula - moving to the chained consumer price index (C-CPI) - that the Obama Administration has long portrayed as an important entitlement reform.

What is a C-CPI reform, exactly? It would peg Social Security cost-of-living adjustments to a different - and, economists say, more accurate - form of inflation. The practical effects...
