Urge Your Senator to Co-Sponsor the Resolution Against the Chained CPI

From our colleagues at the Alliance for Retired Americans: 

When Alliance activists speak out, Congress listens!  After hearing from Alliance activists like you about the impact of the chained CPI benefit cut, senators across the country quickly joined tocosponsor  the Senate Resolution(S.Con.Res. 15) opposing the chained CPI Benefit cut.  Most recently, Senators Kay Hagan (D-NC) andRichard Blumenthal (D-CT) joined to cosign this important resolution.  

The so-called chained CPI is based on an economic theory that goes something like this: as prices go up on some items, people choose cheaper alternatives. By applying it to seniors on Social Security, politicians are assuming that you can substitute other, cheaper alternatives for things like the triple heart bypass surgery you need.

Ask your Senator to Co-Sponsor the Senate Resolution Against the Chained CPI Benefit Cut!
