Club for Growth Calls On Walden To Clarify His Remarks On Chained CPILink to Article: http://www.clubforgrowth.org/perm/pr/?postID=1204
Washington, DC - The Club for Growth issued the following statement in response to National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Greg Walden’s comments opposing “chained CPI” inflation calculation for Social Security:
“Greg Walden doesn’t seriously oppose even the most modest of reforms to social security, right?” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “With nearly $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities, the last thing Republicans should attack the Democrats for is for making the most minor reforms to our entitlement programs. If anything, President Obama nibbles around the edges of entitlement reform and doesn’t do anything to put entitlements on a permanently sustainable path.”
“Greg Walden ought to think about clarifying his remarks on chained CPI, and think about clarifying soon. I’m sure his constituents would like to know his opinion,” added Chocola.
