Where Did Øbama Get The Idea For "Climate Hubs?"


Recommended Posts

We certainly know the prez didn't get any climate term from a republican, the party against environmental protection. But Poptart is too biased to call out his own corporate polluting party.

Your envy of my disability income further reveals your sickness. You are the kind of person who looks upon the wheelchair bound with jealousy because you'd happily trade your health for money. You are sick. You should apply for disability. I can't imagine how you wouldn't qualify with your mental illness...

Typical you would link to an article that spouts the propaganda. "Cuts" do to the chained CPI are not solely Republican in origin.

The Pinocchio Test

Schakowsky’s and Grijalva’s quotes are very different — his statement could be dismissed as partisan opinion; her comment is a possibly defensible interpretation of the negotiation dynamics — but they both leave the impression that chained CPI is a purely Republican creation.

White House statements certainly add to the confusion. Although this is a presidential proposal, spokesmen frequently suggest Obama is taking the step only in response to GOP demands.

Yet a prominent Democrat was a driving force behind the development of the concept, and others, such as Bowles, have embraced it, as well. (We should note that other Democrats, such as the late Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, were also fierce opponents.) Moreover, the BLS, through its various changes to the index, has shown that it is primarily concerned about accuracy in measuring changes in the cost of living.

Opponents of chained CPI would do better to drop the partisan attacks and acknowledge that some Democrats are as responsible for promoting chained CPI as Republicans.

The United States Chained Consumer Price Index (C-CPI-U), also known as chain-weighted CPI or chain-linked CPI is a time series measure of price levels of consumer goods and services created by the Bureau of Labor Statistics as an alternative Consumer Price Index. It is based on the idea that in an inflationary environment, consumers will choose less-expensive substitutes. This reduces the rate of cost of living increases through the reduction of the quality of consumed goods. The "fixed weight" CPI also takes such substitutions into account, but does so through a periodic adjustment of the "basket of goods" that it represents, rather than through a continuous estimation of the declining quality of goods consumed. Application of the chained CPI to federal benefits has been controversially proposed to reduce the federal deficit.
