Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) remains steadfastly opposed to benefit cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security. Using the chained CPI to reduce cost of living adjustments is a benefit cut that middle-class Americans cannot afford.
"Whether pursued through the budget process or any other means, I will do everything in my power to oppose these cuts. The American public has been clear -- they want Congress to defend and strengthen Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security. I have stood with them throughout this process, and I will continue to stand with them."
