Apr 18, 2013 | Social Security

Tune in now as the House Committee on Ways and Means Subcommittee on Social Security holds a hearing focusing on the use of the chained CPI to determine the Social Security cost-of-living adjustment.  CRFB's Senior Advisor and the Moment of Truth Project Executive Director, Ed Lorenzen, will be testifying on the merits of switching to the chained CPI.  His prepared testimony can be read here.

The hearing, which is the first in a series on the President's and other bipartisan entitlement reform proposals, will begin at 9:30am. You can watch the live stream of the video here.
