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

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.

Amazing how the double standard is alive and well. If you are rich, you can invest in as many types of retirement funds as you like; but the poor are penalized for wanting equal treatment...
I've worked all my life in both public and private enterprises and I think I deserve the benefits of both.
The WE Law also reduces the employees ANNUITY- this point often lost by the emphasis on the social security reduction. Despite having 28 years of contributions, my annuity has been reduced by almost $1,000 each month.
This predjudicial law reduced my federal annuity by over $900. a month as well as my SS benefits despite having 38 years of service!
