When Alan Grayson and Mark Takano released their No Cuts letter, stating "we will vote against any and every cut to Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security benefits-- including raising the retirement age or cutting the cost of living adjustments that our constituents earned and need," they clearly had an Obama-Boehner deal on Chained CPI in mind. Almost 40 Members of Congress have signed onto it now, although only 2 freshmen besides Takano, Matt Cartwright (PA) and Rick Nolan (MN). Here at Blue America we've been asking candidates for Congress where they stand on Chained CPI and other Austerity schemes to reduce benefits for seniors in order to allow the wealthy to pay immorally low tax rates. Everyone on this page understands the issue and is aligned with the congressmembers who signed the Grayson-Takano letter.
