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

18,158 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.

The WEP/GPO must be eliminated. It should have never existed at all. I can not call it anything but stealing. If you work multiple jobs, both private and for Government and paid into both, you should receive what you're entitled to. I can not see how this can be legal. Why isn't this topic in the news "Every Day" instead of Presidential election Bull?
Hitler's 3rd Reich started out telling german people what they want to hear just to win the vote for the party elected. After that, you never could vote, you lost your privacy, you could not talk freely, and the 3rd Reich kept everyone at peasant level. Just for the sake of the Reich-Furor
Please give us back the social security benefits that we are entitled to.
Stop messing around with our future. You have balanced the budget on the backs of State of Nevada Employees for way too long now.... Please STOP!!!!!
Dont reduce benefits for anybody
What I CANNOT understand is WHY Congress is not even bringing this bill up for a vote.It is SO frustrating to think that Congress could CARE LESS about our plight to have the WEP and GPO repealed.What is wrong with our system when the working people are COMPLETELY ignored.
It is shameful to take money from public school teachers who deserve far more than a pension on a sub-par salary. Eliminate the GPO!
As a citizen I am tired of public officials managing like there are no rules. It was a crime to take this money. Every time there is a shortfall government wants to take.get rid of the illegal aliens, freeloaders, lazy bums and all the unfair drain on working people, free entitlements. I have no problem with helping someone get ahead. They work pay taxes and support the system.

And don't mess with Social Security. DO NOT INCREASE THE AGE. If you raise it retirees will never collect anything. Also people need to retire so as to let jobs become available for the young.

Quit letting the imbalance of profits against wages and human welfare continue. In the last 15 years with insurance costs, and inflation, my wage has shrunk.

If I didn't open a business I couldn't live the American Middle class dream. 3 students college over 300000.00. So I work an average of 70 hrs a week, to maintain my lifestyle. My taxes on my house 20 years ago where 1700.00. They are now 4700.00. And it has dropped over 40000.00 in value because of crooked banking and suppressed wages. House insurance was 400.00 now 1000.00. Do I need to continue. Put America first again. Forget the other countries that want us dead and destroyed. BALANCE THE BUDGET.
