Jim Dean, the chairman of Democracy for America, said that targeting the benefit programs would be a losing issue for any politician — and Democrats would be wise to stay away from supporting changes like chained CPI.

“No elected official of any party would dare be able to go back to their district with something like a chained CPI, I don’t care how conservative they are, or how liberal they are,” he said. “I haven’t quite figured out why it keeps floating around.
