Another "must share" which ran in several So. California newspapers. The takeaway is in the last two paragraphs:
"Taxpayers should know that pension costs will go up for years to come. Tax hikes at this point will only go toward papering over the negative consequences of previous bad decisions.
When pension reform is back on the table, agreed to and enacted, only then should taxpayers entertain the prospect of forking over more of their money."
I hope you will take the time to share this with all of your acquaintances. If only most of these tax hike proposals were voted down, we just might see a little more enthusiasm for pension reform.
