“This was the first time in decades that a law would drastically cut the pensions of current retirees. These hardworking Americans deserve a strong and secure retirement. I owe it to the 4,044 participants in the Central States Pension Plan in my district to fight for their future and fix the financial solvency of their benefits. I will stop at nothing to ensure that they get the respect they deserve and the payments they are owed,” said Congressman Ryan.
