Reject Chained-CPI for Social Security

WHEREAS, Democrats created Social Security nearly 80 years ago as a safety net for our nation's neediest, and

WHEREAS, millions of elderly and disabled Americans rely on Social Security to provide for their basic needs, and

WHEREAS, adopting “Chained Consumer Price Indexing” is projected to take out as much as $112 billion in benefits payments over the next 10 years, and

WHEREAS, “Chained CPI” will mean that our nation’s neediest will see benefits lag behind rising costs for basic needs,

THEREFORE, RESOLVED, the DPDC opposes “Chained CPI” as part of any budget solution.
