Reports indicate that President Obama's budget proposal will include cuts to Social Security via a mechanism called "chained CPI" -- a move I strongly oppose. Call it whatever you want -- it's still a cut to those who need help the most. We can't let it happen.
While there are large portions of the President's budget we strongly support, cutting Social Security is a bridge too far. It's an unnecessary attack on a critical program that, by law, is unable to add to the deficit.
It's not too late to stop this. Join Senator Tom Harkin and call on President Obama not to cut Social Security before he unveils his budget on Wednesday!
