5/18 - HAPPY ARMED FORCES DAY
It has been another amazing week in DC. The town is full of thousand of police officers, in a myriad of uniforms. At the same time the city is swirling around the Bengazi story; the IRS story, the AP story and more. In the meantime Congress is working on the farm bill and the House has passed the DoD construction-VA approps bill. (please see below) Then to add to all the drama we have royalty visiting all over our country.

The current CPI does not keep adequate pace with inflation and puts all recipients behind the power curve, as anyone who receives benefits can attest, against actual inflation. Our affiliate, TSCL, has taken and will continue to take a stand regarding CPI computations and most significantly this current methodology. TREA cosigned a letter (with several other organizations) that was sent to Congress opposing the proposal to substitute a chained CPI calculation. This could have significant potential reductions in benefits especially over the long term.
