Fighting For Our Everyday Heroes: Restoring Fairness To America’s Social Security System with Representatives Graves and Spanberger
Fairness is a concept that our society treasures and something that we, as law enforcement officers, value highly.
On this episode of the Blue View, National FOP President Patrick Yoes sits down Representatives Garret N. Graves (R-LA) and Abigail A. Spanberger (D-VA) to discuss the negative impact the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and Government Pension Offset (GPO) are having on America’s public employees.
The WEP and GPO provisions do not eliminate a windfall for workers. It is a loss of the benefits they earned and are denied because they also served the public and have a pension from that work. That’s not right and it’s not fair. Passing the ‘Social Security Fairness Act’ would make a real difference in the lives of our nation’s retired public servants.
Law enforcement officers have one of the toughest and most dangerous jobs in the United States. The brave men and women of law enforcement are charged with the enormous responsibility of keeping our streets and neighborhoods safe.
Be sure to tune in to Blue View, a weekly podcast presented by the National Fraternal Order of Police, to hear from law enforcement experts, elected officials, and other notable leaders to gain insight into the issues and current events surrounding the law enforcement community. Each episode will leave you with a better understanding of what law enforcement officers face daily. Together, we can rebuild the trust between police officers and the communities they serve.
