The retirement of many long-time legislators is opening up the eyes of many to the very generous pensions.

See The Citizens Voice story by Michael Race, Stepping out to big pensions.

The Commonwealth Foundation will soon be releasing a study, Beneath the Surface: Pennsylvania’s Looming Pension and Healthcare Crisis, in which we will show just how lucrative and out of step with the private sector these taxpayer-supported benefits packages are.

Not only are the public pension and healthcare benefits much more generous than what you find in the private sector, but it will be the private sector that will have to pay higher taxes in the very near future to fund them.
