I think all Illinois tax payers who voted for 0bama should pay a 78% tax rate to show their support for wealth redistribution and union support .
But paying taxes is patriotic, right?
The public unions in this pitiful state still find time to go protest Scott Walker in Wisconsin and Mitch Daniels in Indiana. They are truly sickening.
Public Radio is doing their fundraising thing right now. I was listening to Prairie Home Show (the one thing I like on NPR) and I’ll be damned if one of the jabbering heads trying to talk folks into sending in money actually used the “paying your fair share” comments into a spiel.
I just changed the channel. Gah.
Couldn’t happen to a better bunch of folks. I hope that Chicago becomes a ghost town. I feel sorry for the folks downstate however.
Sky high taxes don’t work? Gee, Pat, who’d a thunk it?
Public Unions another gift from the democrats,JFK.
Insanity. Pure unadulterated insanity on the part of the liberals. They really cannot learn. God save us all.
Why would anyone want to lose their pension for a 401(k)? Under a defined benefit plan or a pension, the investing is done for you and you are guaranteed your retirement benefit. That benefit is calculated by your salary and time served. Your pension is guaranteed for the rest of your life. A defined benefit is best for those who are unfamiliar with investing or playing the stock market, and want a guaranteed retirement. The 401(k) plan, or defined contribution, is only worth the money it gains or loses. Because defined contributions rely on the market, you could double your investments, or you could lose it all only a few years before you retire. Your benefits are defined by how well your investments did, and will end when the money is spent. Defined contribution plans are best for those who are wise investors and like to roll the dice by playing the market.
looks like they got their talking points...
The Cook County Machine turning out bigger pensions than pay for its former foot soldiers. AHH! The county Democrats at their best !
It gets better...
“How Daley beefed up his pension payouts”
“The same legislation, rushed through the General Assembly on the last day of the session, also gave private labor leaders public pensions based on their much higher union salaries. Under Daley’s watch, former Chicago Federation of Labor President Dennis Gannon was given a one-day city job that allowed him to collect a public pension based on his $200,000 private union salary.”
