Infographic: 50+ Voters and the Chained CPI

Survey shows overwhelming majority wants Social Security 'off the table' in budget talks

En español | A new AARP survey examines voters’ opinions about the "chained CPI," a proposal in Washington that would change the way the cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA) is calculated for Social Security and veterans' benefits. The survey found that voters across party lines overwhemingly oppose cutting Social Security as a way to reduce the deficit. Interestingly, the survey also found that voters would be less favorable toward their members of Congress if he or she were to vote for the chained CPI proposal.
