Social Security Benefits will be reduced by 2010 despite the promises of both Democrat and GOP politicians. Each "YES" coupons pays the percentage of benefits that the average social security retiree receives in 2010 adjusted for inflation compared to the average 1995 Social security retiree. If social security is benefits are suspended for any reason, this claim is judged "No" and "No" coupon holders receive $1. "No" coupon holders receive the percentage by which the average 2010 social benefits per retiree are less than the average 1995 benefits per retiree. If the average amount received by retirees in 2010 is in excess of that received by the average retiree in 1995, then this claim is judged "YES" and "YES" coupon holders get $1.00.
*Warning* The letter of this claim is in opposition to its short description. While the short description describes a reduction in benefits, a $1.00 YES judgment results if benefits do not decrease.
I will judge based on the claim's long description, since the long description includes the relevant scaled payout criteria.
Boilerplate: I will judge based on the intent of this claim, if I perceive such intent to be obvious. If such intent is ambiguous I will judge on the basis of the precise wording. If both are ambiguous, I will look for a solution which follows IF/FX precedent insofar as such precedent is apparent to me and applicable to the claim. I will seek the guidance of the claim's owner/author in interpreting the claim. It's his or her question - s/he ought to get the answer sought. If I believe this claim to have met a YES or NO condition, and if I believe judgement will be controversial, I will post a prospective judgement to fx-discuss and forestall entering the judgement for a comment period to be announced in the post.
