Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) has introduced a new bill, S.1651, that would repeal both the GPO and the WEP. This bill will be a companion to Rodney Davis’ House bill, HR 973. We are delighted to see this! We have been waiting for this bill for months. We want to thank him and the other 11 Senators who have signed on as original sponsors.
|Sen. Collins, Susan M. [R-ME]||Sen. Warren, Elizabeth [D-MA]|
|Sen. Hirono, Mazie K. [D-HI]||Sen. Blumenthal, Richard [D-CT]|
|Sen. Vitter, David [R-LA]||Sen. Murkowski, Lisa [R-AK]|
|Sen. Whitehouse, Sheldon [D-RI]||Sen. Baldwin, Tammy [D-WI]|
|Sen. Franken, Al [D-MN]||Sen. Udall, Tom [D-NM]|
|Sen. Heller, Dean [R-NV]|
If one or both of your Senators are there, please thank them!
If your Senators don’t appear on this list, you have WORK to do!
Here are some ideas:
- Find information about them at senate.gov.
- Fill out the “contact” forms.
- Tell them your story.
- Tell them that neither the Social Security Administration nor you employer told you that you were going to lose 40% or ALL of your earned SS benefits. You were not even able to plan for this.
- Get friends and family to write letters or comments on their website, also.
Next week is a great time to get to them. They are “working” in their home states from June 29 through July 3.
- Call their local offices. Make them take your statement for the Senator.
- Call their D.C. offices. When they are gone their legislative aides might have more time to talk to you.
