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

11,390 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.

I am completely against this bill it is a horrible thing to do to people.
If you pay into the system, they should not have the right to reduce your benefits.
I understand the rationale, but it adversely impacts low income seniors. Especially those of us who worked as teachers in Texas and have no cost of living increases - EVER! - on our measly Texas Teacher Retirement pensions.
Please repeal the GPO offset and the WEP.
I paid it, I should be entitled to it!
I worked 22 years under Social Secuity, and went to work for the Postal Service, under which I was Civil Service. I retired from the Postal Service, with 32 years service, but because I have a Postal retirement, this stupid, thieving gov't. has reduced my S.S by two- thirds. I worked for that, and the gov't has no right to it. REPEAL THIS NOW!!!
We need your support to end these discriminatory provisions of the Social Security laws
