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

Messages 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.

worked 45 years full time as farmer. had some good income years and some bad ones.paid social security every year. got out of farming and took employment with county engineer under p.e.r.s.. I found out my s.s. would be cut 50 present. Many of my coworkers are finding this out. I tell them to thank the u.s. gov. for taking our money and just keep working till we die.

The WEP is unfair and penalizes me for previous retirement funds earned under another system. My Social Security is figured ONLY on earnings on which I PAID social security taxes!!! I should receive full benefits for those earnings!!!
