Protect Disabled Veterans’ Benefits

The Senate votes today on an amendment introduced by Sen. Bernie Sanders which would protect the benefits of disabled veterans by not implementing the so-called chained-CPI.  This amendment would protect the benefits of more than 3.2 million disabled veterans; 350,000 surviving spouses and children who have lost a loved one in battle; the pensions of 310,000 extremely-low income veterans; and 9 million veterans receiving Social Security benefits.
