Protect Social Security and Veterans' Benefits

Some Washington politicians are proposing a budget deal that would change the cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA) for Social Security and veterans' benefits, cutting benefits by $146 billion over the next ten years.

The COLA change, called the chained CPI, would hurt seniors and veterans who are already living on tight budgets stretched by prescriptions, utility bills, mortgages and health care costs.

On behalf of America's seniors who have worked hard to earn their benefits and veterans who have already sacrificed so much for this great country, urge the Senate to reject this harmful change and instead find responsible ways to address our nation's budget challenges.
