— Unfair retirement cuts – James Glover, President, Chapter 1309 (COMMENT: I am one of those 99,640. My Social Security is $365 less each month because I get a Civil Service Retirement System pension. I paid Social Security taxes while I washed dishes, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, pumped gasoline, delivered mail, worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances, etc. 1964-1974.)
(FROM THE LETTER: I am a retired federal employee who loses $500 per month from my earned Social Security benefit. In 1984, Congress unfairly reduced public employee SSA pensions by two-thirds of the benefit earned and promised for no reason other than to save SSA money. No other category of pensions was reduced. We urge Congress to pass HR 82 and S1302 to remedy this unjust treatment. This unfair law adversely affects 99,640 citizens in Illinois and needs to be repealed so we can get the same benefits earned like everyone else.)
