Subject: PLEASE CO-SPONSOR HR 82 AGAIN!
Thank you for cosponsoring H.R. 82 in the 117th Congress to repeal the Government Pension Offset (GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP).
While you necessarily represent your state, you demonstrated that what you support has far-reaching effects on our nation's citizenry, and the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HM2XRYGgz58&t=9s describes that understanding.
Ageist in design and discriminatory, the penalties target federal, state, and municipal workers, many of whom are responsible for keeping us safe and secure and educating our children, and take a significant toll on foreign pensioners (legal immigrants and Americans abroad).
It's time to right this wrong, so please move this pressing issue to the forefront of your legislative activities and cosponsor H.R. 82 today.
