2019 SOCIAL SECURITY GPO/WEP REPEAL UPDATE

Urgent: Social Security Reform

This is the year that Social Security Reform will likely come to  a vote on the floor of the US House of Representatives.  Fortunately we have CT Representative John Larson chairing the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Social Security.  On Jan. 30, he will introduce a Social Security Reform Bill.  Also, Nancy Pelosi has said that any bills that have a large number of co-signers should get a vote from the whole House.

House Bill 141, Social Security Fairness Act of 2019 – 2020, is to repeal the GPO/WEP.  Thus far, representatives John Larson, Jim Himes, and Jahana Hayes have not signed on to co-sponsor this bill.  We urge you to contact them to co-sponsor this important bill.

Larson:  860 278 8888

Jim Himes:  866 453 0028

Johana Hayes:  860 223 8412

It is important that they be contacted in order to include the repeal of the GPO/WEP in any Social Security Reform Bill.

Representatives Joe Courtney and Rosa DeLauro have already co-sponsored the repeal bill. Be sure to thank them and ask them to urge their colleagues to co-sponsor H.R.141 as well.
