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

Stop reducing social security benefits for public employees who receive pensions

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.

Please appeal this law. It is so unfair and cruel. I am sick over the whole thing. I can barely survive since you are taking over 2/3 of my benefits. Now I'll have to apply for food stamps and government assistance. Is that what you want?
