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

11,938 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 have paid into the Social Security system, then into another retirement system, then get penalized by SS for no real reason. Had I simply stopped working when I lost my factory, I'd get full SS benefits, but paying into another system causes loss of a significant portion of my due retirement income.
After working my whole life in public service and paying into social security it doesn't seem fair that I would be penalized because I was also paying in to a state pension fund.
This bill is fair and just!!
This is necessary!!!
How does anyone live off what some of our pensions are.
No wonder some people are eating dog food .
My electric bill is over $275.00 a month and I cut everything off I can and the thermstat is on 78-80.
Impacts also people worked two jobs
People are only wanting what they are intitiled to based upon what they contributed to social security.
Windfall elimination provision! Congress comes up with all kinds of fanciful names for their bills in order to convince voters that their bills are beneficial to the public. We must stand against this and other unfair laws at every opportunity.
The only way these politicians will hear us is if we ALL stop voting in this election. Not one of them deserves our vote.

This law is unfair to Texas teachers who paid into social security and now receive only half of what they earned by paying into Teacher Retirement and Social Security. And why does this law only apply to thirteen states?
