That's what I thought too.
My comment as a Conservative voter (voter NOT supporter, I just think they're less bad than Labour)
Are benefits a safety net providing enough to live on for those in need of them or do they pay people more than enough to cover the basics and to be able to afford luxuries?
If they are just enough to live on, will capping them below inflation not put people below the breadline?
If they are more than enough to live on, why are they not being cut?

Shadow chancellor Ed Balls says: "While millionaires get a tax cut, seven million striving working families are paying the price for David Cameron and George Osborne's economic failure."
How the hell can a clown like Ed Balls come up with a reply like that and keep a straight face? The state of denial within Labour over the financial state their own party left this country in is still breathtaking.....
