CPI's Lie on Household Inflation Doesn't Wash

Interesting read.

Since wages, Social Security cost-of-living increases and some agency budgets are tied to it, the government has a vested interest in keeping it as low as possible.

Rental units and homes are two very different animals, though, and the government casts a blind eye to total homeownership expenses.
