Phillip P.

I worked 30 years at UPS and payed into Teamster Central States Pension Fund. Now at age 66, I got a letter saying CSPF will be taking 50% of my pension, about 1275.00 per month in July 2016. This is a broken contract, broken promise, and theft. Just because it was passed through congress does not make it right. If I took money from people like this it would be called fraud and I would be sent to the pen. The US gives money all over the world, WE bail out GM, Chrysler, Wall Street, and the Banks but the people that worked hard and went by the rules can’t get any help. Why are things so crooked and upside down? My Wife and I cannot live with these pension cuts and we cannot go back to work. CONGRESS, what are we supposed to do? DIE? If Congress does not help these Retirees then every member of Congress should be voted out and replaced with someone who is for the American People first. God said” The man that does not take care of his own house first is worse than an infidel.
