One progressive group, Democracy for America, is threatening primary challenges to those Democrats who support the cuts.

Sanders said he is “terribly disappointed and will do everything in [his] power to block” a part of the proposal that would reduce cost-of-living increases for Social Security recipients by tying them to a more restrictive measure of inflation, known as “chained CPI.”
