Congressman Blumenauer met with representatives of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees (NARFE), including new Oregon president Zane Suverly, to discuss some of the issues concerning their members. The meeting centered around fairness for federal pensions and employees collecting Social Security and Medicare benefits, as well as concern about the lack of cost-of-living (COLA) increases due to Social Security's formula being tied to the Consumer Price Index.
