“Congressman Sestak Calls on Governor Rendell to Maintain Assistance to Disabled”

Here is an excerpt from an article that showed up on January 28, 2010 on the News Blaze website at the following address … http://newsblaze.com/story/20100128140735zzzz.nb/topstory.html

Today, Congressman Joe Sestak (PA-07) wrote to Governor EdRendell, calling on the Governor to avoid cuts to state supplemental payments (SSP)to disabled and elderly and low income individuals. Specifically, Congressman Sestak called for the exemption from the change, which amounts to a 20% reduction in state assistance to disabled individuals, for blind and disabled children and disabled individuals relying solely on federal Supplement Security Income (SSI) payments"


It offers some basic insight into what is happening with regards to Pennsylvania’s decision to decrease their contribution to Social Security benefits by what comes to about $5.30 a month decrease for an individual I’m not sure what the amount of the decrease is for couples, I imagine it’s probably the same or maybe as much as $10 for them, but I’m not sure so if someone could give that info to me I would really appreciate it.
