Thank you retirees! I just wanted to thank all the retirees who attended the Washington, D.C. rally on April 14 to “stop pension cuts.” Retirees from all around the United States attended.
For those retirees not able to withstand the long trip to Washington, thank you for attending the Springfield, Ill., and Jefferson City, Mo., rally on the same day. The St. Louis-Metro East committees are working hard to reach retirees not aware of details regarding these drastic cuts which may occur.
By standing together we will show our politicians, local and federal government these cuts are illegal and unconstitutional. We will fight for our pensions which were earned by many.
Write and call your representatives today and encourage them to get on board and vote “yes” on Keep Our Pensions Promises Act (KOPPA) Senate S1631 and HR 2844. Pension Accountability Act (PAA) Senate S2147 and HR 4029.
By voting yes we protect pensions now and for generations to come. This action that threatens our pensions will not be restricted to central states. Every pensioner is at risk. The time to stop this is now. We need everyone’s support and remember, too, we have an election coming up this year. Make wise choices for the politicians who will stand up for America and what we stand for.
