Rep. Schakowsky Joined Colleagues in Opposition to Chained CPI

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Jan Schakowsky voiced her opposition to chained CPI as part of any budget deal today at the Congressional Progressive Caucus press conference:

"The chained CPI was a Boehner/McConnell demand in the negotiations -- it was a bad idea then and it is a bad idea now. We should not be negotiating with those who want to take Social Security benefits hostage -- seniors are not a bargaining chip. It's time that the Republicans agree to raise revenues that put people back to work in good-paying jobs without demanding cuts to Medicare and Social Security in exchange."
