Damn, someplace I read that the Administration forced the BLS to lower the CPI by 0.2%. But holders of inflation indexed bonds objected, so they were reassured that the CPI isn't being lowered for them. Just for Social Security, etc.

Where did I read it? I lost the reference. The Nation? SocSec? EPI? LBO?
