The Chamber of Corruption, err Commerce attacks pensions again.

Asking a lot of “Do you still beat your wife” questions, the
Chamber put out a survey attacking pensions again. It’s okay that many Chamber
members get tax breaks but don’t you dare be a public servant and hope not to
live in poverty when you retire.
A few things the chamber won’t tell you is that the Florida
Retirement System, is incredibly healthy and there is zero danger of Florida
becoming another Detroit.  Furthermore
many public servants traded pay for pension and benefits and since Florida has
some of the lowest paid public service workers in the nation, the Chamber wants
to see them left with neither.
I will however throw the Chamber a bone. Hey Chamber just
have the state of Florida pay me the nations average for teachers, a 14
thousand dollar raise for me after 12 years and then just give me cost of
living increases so I don’t get poorer and I will take care of my own pension.

To be embarrassed and feel a little sick, click the
link and see the survey, maybe take a moment and let them know how you feel too:
