Tell President Obama: Social Security COLA cut chains seniors and people with disabilities to poorer life
President Obama included cuts to the Social Security cost of living adjustment (COLA) through the obscure-sounding chained CPI in his budget proposal next week. It would do real damage to seniors and people with disabilities, current and future.
It is important to send President Obama and the White House a message that this is not acceptable. Please send your message below and personalize it.
More about the chained CPI:
- It's a benefit cut.
- It cuts benefits more with every passing year.
- It hits today's Social Security beneficiaries.
- We need a higher COLA, not a lower one. The current COLA does not adequately account for large health care cost increases faced by seniors and people with disabilities.
