Please cosign H.R. 82 NOW! Provide real support for seniors!

Public worker retirees need you to repeal the Government Pension Offset and the Windfall Elimination Provision!

H.R. 82 by Rodney Davis has 284 cosigners. We need 290 to force a floor vote, which House leadership has refused to allow. Help us make it happen! This really badly written legislation needs to be cleaned off the books. Please cosign H.R. 82 now!

Show your support for teachers, police, and firefighters, and other public workers who have fully paid for Social Security benefits like everyone else. Please cosign H.R. 82, which would repeal both the Government Pension Offset and the Windfall Elimination Provision. The GPO usually eliminates all Social Security benefits for people who may have had even a partial career in public service. Widows can lose as much as $2,000 every month in survivor benefits. The WEP cuts Social Security benefits by as much as $500 a month for people who paid for both Social Security and a public pension.

The cost of repealing both WEP and GPO is less than 2% of what the Social Security Administration pays in worker benefits each year.

  1. Still with the Social Security Fairness? Not going to happen. Should happen. It is the right thing to do. But when have our elected officials cared about doing the right thing? They say they care. Flower it up. Lace it with catchy slogans. But when time comes to vote, the yes or no is mostly about what is good for their political career. Sure, President Biden promised massive social security reform. But he also promised mass student loan forgiveness. When they need our votes, they are dynamic and on point. When we need their vote, they are spinning like a top. Redirecting the conversation to get us off their back. It would take a miracle for the WEP to be repealed. Would require our elected officials to truly give a damn.

    1. We need stronger majorities in both Houses of Congress to make the progress we are working for.

  2. Please, please co-sign this bill. I have worked SO hard since I was 14 years old and have spent the last 10 years in public education. I will never collect a full pension because I won’t have enough years, but I am losing half of my earned social security. If my husband dies I cannot collect on his because of the GPO. This is cruel and unfair. We need your help!

  6. I am wondering why you don’t have the name of Kevin McCarthy CA-23 Republican on your list of Congressmen to contact. He has many Civil Servants in his district who are affected (screwed) by WEP/GPO! His friend Rep Garcia has signed on so I think he is close to signing.

    1. HiJames,
      It would be interesting to see McCarthy sign on. I don’t think he ever has. Members of Leadership often don’t co-sign bills. Isn’t he running against a teacher?

    2. Have the same problem with Hoyer. Will not answer my emails and last I looked he was not a supporter. Yet he brags about what he does for fed employees. Now let’s see if pelosi brings it to Vote.

  7. Done! Sent to all. You made it very easy! Appreciate it!
    Thank you,
    Dorothy Foster

  8. It’s July 16 and there are 292 co-sponsors plus Rep. Ryan who sponsored it. Now we find out who truly cares about the retirees and who is playing politics. Remember in November!

  9. July 22, 2022. 293 Co-sponsors of HR Bill 82 plus Rep. Ryan. Still no action. No support or action from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. I do not live in California and cannot contact Rep. Pelosi. People who live in Rep. Pelosi’s district must contact her and ask why.
