WASHINGTON, D.C. – Top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) today introduced the “Equal Treatment of Public Servants Act of 2021.” 
 
This legislation permanently replaces the unfair Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) Social Security formula with a new, fair formula that treats our teachers, firefighters, and police officers just like the rest of America’s workers.
 
Upon introduction of this legislation, Rep. Brady issued the following statement:

Our teachers, police and firefighters shouldn’t have their Social Security checks docked each month simply due to an outdated, unfair formula from the 1980’s. I’m proud to join with colleagues on both sides of the aisle from nine different states to repeal the WEP and make it fairer for public servants who have worked and paid into Social Security.

 

Many of our public servants have worked extra jobs or an extra career, paying into a Social Security system that treats them differently. We want equal treatment, and believe it’s time for Congress to act. Every month the WEP continues, it costs retirees and their dependents in smaller Social Security benefits. I look forward to working with Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal to get this done as soon as possible.”

 

The following Members are original cosponsors of the legislation:
Rep. Jodey Arrington (R-TX)
Rep. Brain Babin (R-TX)
Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE)

Trust Your Cat

The dating advice I gave to my girlfriend’s daughter was, “Always trust your cat. If your cat doesn’t like them, then you probably won’t either.”

I live with a 14 year old female lion named Little Miss. Like most cats, she pretty much runs the house. She does the usual things, but she also loves to read the newspaper.

I read the Mt. Shasta Herald, and when I’m done, I put it…

Veterans Day

Today I saw a man selling poppies stop a lady and ask if he could re-position her poppy.

While doing so he told that lady she should wear the poppy on their right side; the red represents the blood of all those who gave their lives, the black represents the mourning of those who didn’t have their loved ones…
