House Republican Letter Outlines Concerns with Administration’s Proposed Retirement Cuts for Federal Employees

U.S. CapitolNine House Republicans have written to Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy to express concerns regarding proposals singling out federal employees for cuts in pay and retirement in the administration’s FY 2018 budget.

As they wrote, “Our strongest objection is how the proposals break a promise to employees and retirees who have based career planning on longstanding promised benefit calculations. They and their families don’t deserve to be treated in this cavalier manner.”
