Audio: Is There Really a Public Pension Crisis?

Short answer: Yes!

But some—like government union leaders—deny that anything needs to be done or that there’s a crisis at all.

The truth is, the consequences of inaction on public pension reform are felt by students in schools which are paying ever-higher portions of their budgets on legacy costs and by property owners whose taxes seem to rise year in and year out.

Not to mention that a child born today will be paying off our pension debt until the age of 30!
