In letter to President House Democrats Reaffirm Commitment to Vital Seniors’ Programs

As reported by the Alliance for Retired Americans, 107 Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives (Members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus) released a letter last Friday in which they implored President Obama not to agree to any cuts to Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid as part of an upcoming deal over the sequester cuts.

In the letter, the Representatives adamantly state that they will not agree to a “compromise” that includes cuts to earned benefit programs, including implementation of the flawed “Chained CPI” method of calculating Social Security cost of living adjustments.
