“Chained CPI is like the vampire of American politics,” [Damon Silvers, the policy director of the AFL-CIO] said. “It keeps being shot through the heart and it keeps reviving."
Silvers explains this by returning to the 18th-century vampire story: "The reason it keeps coming back is because it has billionaires behind it.”
Let's see if the vampire meme keeps up this fall and winter.
