President Obama releases his budget today, and it slashes Social Security and veterans' benefits by $146 billion over the next 10 years alone.
The benefit cut, known as the chained CPI, would change the cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for Social Security and veterans' benefits, hurting millions 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 your Senators to reject this harmful change and instead find responsible ways to address our nation's budget challenges.
Use the form below to send a message to your Senators. Tell them to oppose the Social Security and veterans' cuts in Obama's budget!
