2019 SOCIAL SECURITY GPO/WEP REPEAL UPDATE

Urgent: Social Security Reform

We have a new Senate bill, S.521, introduced by Sherrod Brown, which already has 4 co-sponsors: Collins and Murkowski, Baldwin and Leahy. The House of Representatives Social Security Fairness Bill H.R. 141, has 109 co-sponsors, 33 of them Republicans. Its original sponsor, Congressman Rodney Davis from Illinois, is a Republican. This is truly a bipartisan effort! (There are easy links on the homepage of ssfairness.com to check on your legislators. We need 290 co-sponsors to force a vote in the House.)”

At this time, Connecticut representatives John Larson and Jim Himes have not signed on as sponsors – neither have our senators—Richard Blumenthal or Christopher Murphy.
