I get a pension from Germany....Social Security reduced my earnings because of this under the Windfall elimination provision

Is this kind of pension also under consideration in the possible repeal?

Yes...but don't hold your breath. The WEP "repeal" that has been talked about isn't really much of a repeal. Instead, most proposed legislation simply replaces the WEP formula with a new formula called the public service fairness formula.

Here's an article that I wrote where I propose that the last repeal measure would do more harm than good. https://socialsecurityintelligence.com/the-social-security-benefit-reduction-act-of-2015/
