About Protect America's Heartbeat
Protect America's Heartbeat is a campaign supported by the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association. We are committed to fighting for the 3.5 million active and 1.2 million retired federal employees in every state in the nation who dedicate their lives to protecting America's heartbeat. Our federal employees ensure our most basic needs as a society are met – and have sacrificed to help solve our nation's budgetary problems. Yet partisan politicians are making federal workers scapegoats and are seeking to cut not just their earned retirement and benefits, but essential services that millions of Americans rely on each day. The smart path forward through tough economic times will require a strong federal work force. America's federal employees are part of the solution – not the problem.
