President Obama is proposing a $160 billion cut to Social Security that will be used to fund the federal deficit instead of Social Security Fairness through repealing the WEP/GPO. This Washington Post article addresses “Five sticking points in the fiscal cliff deal” > http://goo.gl/0DcOR
Send immediate messages via email and phone to current Congressional Representative and/or Senator. The message should be simple:
I am a retired educator and a member of the California Retired Teachers Association (CalRTA).
* Social Security benefits do not need to be cut to balance the federal budget.
* I oppose the Chained Cost of Living Adjustment that is a Social Security benefit cut.
* Instead of cutting benefits Social Security needs to be fair by repealing the Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset which deny earned benefits.
