H.R.1795 - Repeal the Government Pension Offset (GPO) provision

12,144 Letters Sent So Far

Bill H.R. 1795 has been introduced in Congress. Please support this bill to amend title II of the Social Security Act and repeal the Government Pension Offset(GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provisions (WEP). GPO and WEP unfairly, and only, penalize government employees whose social security pensions are reduced by two-thirds of their state pensions. This impacts teachers, police, firefighters, postal workers, civil servants, and state nurses.

27 years in the postal service, 3 years in the U.S. Army viet-nam vet. Worked part-time to collect Soc. Security just to find out my benefits are cut by 60%.
Worked so hard so my family and I could have a good retirement, so much for that. Still working part-time making peanuts to make end meet. This bill is 31 years old, times has change, the middle class is still paying for the rich and the poor. Come on Congress give the middle class some hope, Please support Bill H.R. 1795 to amend G.O.P/WEP. Veterans fought for this country, and this is the thanks we get. Take our money !!!! Thank you U.S.. government. If the Soc. Security would investigate all the scammer out there, we would have enough funds to pay the hard honest people their full entitlement.
When an originally well-intentioned tax provision (bill, law... whatever) proves to be flawed and or unfair in practice after it has been implemented for an adequate period of time, it very simple.... first, admit the original intention of the bill is not working fairly if at all and second, fix it.

Now why...... WHY is that so difficult ?......But, we really know don't we..... the complex road of our various government's and resulting impasse.

I want to believe in government, but it has become so much harder.
