Please tell us who is holding the risk here.Is it the pensioner who will
get less than promised?Or the politicians who will need to come up with
more money at the last minute to pay up as agreed? ...and doesn't that
really mean us, the taxpayers?And do public servants really deserve more
than the people they serve? In the private sector we have 401Ks with a bit of
company matching at the outset. After that, we're on our own. Tell me why
public workers deserve better? Are they nicer people? Do they work harder?Please explain.
Say no to WiMiRo. Whether or not public servants are seen to 'deserve'
more than the public, they entered into agreement with an employer. Moving
forward, maybe we should have a defined contribution plan rather than a defined
benefit for public servants. However, it isn't the public servants who
failed to actually invest the money deducted from them each month for a pension
up to this point.
@Hutterite...just like the innocent employees of Enron and Worldcom, eh?
Obama is Hillary Clinton's boss and he takes full responsibility for Libya
and death of Americans.Isn't Obama also Eric Holder's
boss, and overtwo and a half thousand weapons passed through ATF to
Mexican cartels? Many men, women, and children were killed with American
weapons. Obama put out an execute order to block an investigation.Instead of focusing on Romney's binders, and stand on abortion, why
doesn't he explain fast and furious to the American people?
