nmpet2 - you are correct, thanks for reminding me. That is all we need, more staff in administration.

Easily solved by eliminating the retirement program and handing them a check for their current pension for them to roll over into their own personal 401K.

Well I'll be dog-goned, "whatever". You and I agree on this. I just wish they'd do the same thing with Social Security. Whatever you paid in, that's what you get back (with nominal interest). If you didn't pay in, you get NOTHING out. I wish participation in the SocSec and Medicare scams was optional. I'd have opted out from day one. It'll be bankrupted by all of the so-called "disabled". If you can get out of bed and walk around, you are able to work. Period.

How about we apply the same principle that "whatever" wants to taxes too? You don't get more back than what you pay in--or in reality, no one should be getting money back because everyone should be paying their fair share. That is what happens when people come together to create a society--ALL must pay for these services. Historically, societies have broken down when they start handing out welfare programs and placing the burdens to pay for them on a select group of individuals.

So if "whatever" wants to do this with retirement for public employees who are actually working and not sloughing off the system, then I say I'm for it, as long as it applies to social security and income taxes as well.
