Momentum is Building, Please Act Now.

Momentum is building! Thanks to Alliance activists like you, Representative David Cicilline (D-RI) introduced a resolution in the House opposing the use of the Chained CPI with the support of over 80 cosponsors! 

Now the Senate is  acting on a similar resolution and we really need your help!  Yesterday Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA), Bernie Sanders (I-VT)  and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) introduced a resolution opposing the use of the Chained CPI (S.CON.RES.15).  It is important the this resolution receive as much support as possible, so please contact your Senator right now and ask them to co-sponsor the resolution .
As you know, the Chained CPI would cut Cost of Living Adjustments for all current and future retirees. This means not only will people currently depending on their modest benefits be affected, but so will their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. 

It’s time to draw the line.  The Chained CPI is a benefit cut, plain and simple.  We must know where our senators stand on this issue.  Please ask them to cosponsor this Resolution to show that they stand on the side of seniors and working people who count on their Social Security benefits.
