What do you think about pension reform in Illinois?

“The Illinois Constitution states that membership in the pension systems “shall be an enforceable contractual relationship, the benefits of which shall not be diminished or impaired.” Rather than raise sufficient revenue or create a state budget that pays the pension obligation and provides state services at desired levels, lawmakers and governors used the pensions as the rest of us might use our personal Visa. The employees did not cause the state’s pension problem, so holding them solely responsible for fixing the problem is not fair or reasonable. Teachers are willing to consider proposals that are constitutional, fair, and will allow Illinois to continue to attract high-quality people to public education.”
