Veteran groups question White House budget plan
Veteran service organizations are forming a united front against President Barack Obama's debt-reduction plan that shrinks cost of living increases for retirees and disabled vets by linking them to the consumer price index. Backers of "Chained CPI" say it would shrink future raises by only fractions. And the same linkage is proposed for Social Security benefits, a move that also has groups representing America's aged population lining up alongside veterans organizations.
