AARP Colorado released new survey results that show 68 percent of older Colorado voters would be considerably less favorable to their member of Congress or Senator if the member voted for a chained or superlative CPI proposal, expected to be in the President’s budget proposal this week.

AARP also released a national survey that could indicate how a vote for benefit cuts could impact House and Senate races across the nation.
