Sure it affects both sides....but it seems pretty lopsided. I have a cousin that refused to talk politics because she can't explain any of what she believes in. She worked on Obama's campaign but couldn't tell you why. And just like URKids on the Hester article disappeared when I started arguing his points. I'm actually quite convincable given enough facts to support a position.…

Hafta agree------I don't like Donald Trump, even think he's an A$$hole, but I gotta respect the way he says what he thinks and doesn't snivel, beg and apologize when people object.

If I worked in the judicial system I would feel duty bound to adhere to the innocent until proven guilty doctrine. As an ordinary system I feel I can pass judgement on this any time I want - just as I am NOT duty bound to agree with the decision rendered by a jury a.k.a. OJ Simpson.

Sen. Cullerton backs pension reform that will supposedly save $138 million

1 year, 9 months ago From sj-r.com

Illinois Senate President John Cullerton said Wednesday he’s working to build support for a compromise pension reform plan that would save $138 billion over 30 years.

“There’s a compromise that we’re talking about right now,” Cullerton told the editorial board of The State Journal-Register. But he said that while the legislative pension reform committee  worked to develop and evaluate the plan, that group has yet to reach agreement.

The Chicago Democrat said he supports the plan, adding that he hopes it can be acted on during the veto session scheduled to begin Oct. 22.

Elements of the compromise include having what is now a 3 percent compounded cost of living adjustment added to pension payments changed to half of the Consumer Price Index. Cullerton said the COLA couldn’t drop below 1 percent.

“It has a ceiling of 4 percent,” he added, “which is important because if there is inflation, there could be an actual opportunity for people to … get more than they’re getting now.”

Estimates are that the proposal would have state pension funds fully funded by 2043.
