Some in Congress Say Paying Down Debt is Your Responsibility
- Despite assurances by President Obama to keep Social Security out of the deficit debate, he and members of Congress are on the verge of approving a proposal that would cut projected Social Security benefits by changing the current Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) formula to a stingier �chained� Consumer Price Index (CPI). If that happens, seniors, retired veterans and the disabled will see an immediate reduction in their benefits!
That�s why I urge YOU and all National Committee supporters to
TAKE THE FOLLOWING IMMEDIATE ACTION:
Call the Legislative Hotline Number: 800-998-0180 and get connected to your representatives� offices. Tell your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators to REJECT this major cut to your earned Social Security benefits.
Call the White House: 202-456-1414 and tell President Obama not to support cuts to Social Security during these fiscal cliff talks.
Adopting the chained CPI is nothing more than a political sleight of hand targeting our nation�s middle-class and poor and would amount to a benefit cut, pure and simple. We don�t have much time to defeat this proposal, so please help your National Committee send a powerful message to your elected officials in Washington TODAY to uphold the majority will of Americans by REJECTING this harmful proposal!
Thank you in advance,
President and CEO
