The top House Republican campaign official broke with other GOP leaders Wednesday in criticizing President Barack Obama over his chained CPI proposal.
During an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) said Obama was “trying to balance this budget on the backs of seniors” with the plan, which would change the way Social Security cost-of-living adjustments are calculated.
Daniel Scarpinato, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said Walden is opposed to “chained CPI,” even if that’s out of step with other GOP leaders.
“He believes it’s wrong to cut benefits for seniors to pay for more wasteful spending,” Scarpinato said.
Chapter 1: White House Calls for Hold on Decision Regarding Plan-B Morning After Pill The FDA announced lowered the age which young women can obtain Plan-B, the so-called “morning-after pill” without a prescription from 17 years-of-age to 15. A federal district judge thought there shouldn’t be any age restriction. The Administration reacted by asking the court for a stay while they appeal. We talk to Linda Feldmann reporter for the Christian Science Monitor who has been following the story. Chapter 2: Social Security and Chained CPI Retirement assistance be it Social Security and Medicare remains a constant battle when Congress debates the budget. Various budget proposals have varied on how they would address its solvency. President Obama included the adoption of chained-CPI to calculate future social security needs and payouts to retirees. The Senate did not. The Republican budget didn’t, but included other cuts. We talk to Mark Romm, Director of Masters Program in American Government at Georgetown University and Max Richtman, President and CEO of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security. Chapter 3: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie Using State Race for 2016 Ambitions Chris Christie is again bucking his own party, calling for expanded background checks to curb gun violence. Meanwhile, the New Jersey Gubernatorial election is 6 months away, though many are calling it a done deal. Christie is a popular national figure, even having been named one of Time’s 100 most influential people. His Opponent is Barbara Buono, a state senator who served as the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and as majority leader. We get an update from Paul Mulshine, columnist at the New Jersey Star Ledger.
It makes no sense for President Obama, to met with Republicans and talk about changing the most successful Democratic social programs in the history of this country for seniors, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. If Democrats stay strong and tell the President that they will not support such changes as a CPI change in Medicare (that is the rate at which benefits are calculated) which seniors received in which they paid into the system and is entitle to received at age 65 or if disabled. Call-in this Thursday and voice your opinion as we discuss this important topic that will affect seniors on Medicare today!
Has President Obama lost his mind in proposing changes to the CPI formula to how benefits are calculated in which Medicare recipients receive their monthly benefits. The Republicans want to cut the amount of benefits recepiants are currently receiving, they say that Medicare is driving up the cost of health care cost for many Americans and will drive the country broke in the future which is a lie. Democrats do a poor job in letting the Republicans control the narrative
