Fix the Debt Reacts to Harkin Resolution on Chained CPI
Statement from the Campaign to Fix the Debt
The following is a statement from Maya MacGuineas, President of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and head of the Campaign to Fix the Debt in reaction to a Senate resolution introduced today by Senator Harkin on Chained CPI:
WASHINGTON, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Reaching agreement on a comprehensive debt deal will require consideration of all options and compromises by both sides, and taking proposals off the table makes a deal harder. Chained CPI is a technical change that would help improve the budget situation and strengthen Social Security, and it has the support of President Obama as well as experts across the country. It is irresponsible and counterproductive to take a common sense and bipartisan option off the table."
