4 thoughts on “Forbes post series on multiemployer pensions (March 2020)

  1. Perhaps Congress has more important things to deal with? The multi-employer pension plans are private contracts between companies and their workers, and taxpayers with their own retirement concerns aren’t interested?

    The economic train wreck right in front of us ought to end the chance of pensioners being treated any differently than any other retirees without enough savings to cover their costs in retirement. Congress is probably going to have to do something to help impoverished retirees; that will have to cover Teamster pensioners the same as everyone else.

  2. I have written my South Carolina Senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott as well as my representative Tom Rice numerous times concerning this issue. I have requested face to face meetings at a time and location of their choosing, but failed to secure a meeting. They talk in circles and never answer the questions. To me that’s the PC way to say “we don’t care about this issue.” None of them care. They respond with generic form letters that don’t address my concerns. Generally, they say that they are working hard on numerous issues concerning the American people etc… but never address my questions. Graham is more concerned with getting on Fox news all the time. If Graham would show just a little bit of the passion he displayed for Justice Kavanaugh confirmation hearing this issue would be solved before this day is over. I’m a life long conservative, but I wouldn’t vote for any of these guys if you are concerned about your pension because it’s obvious from my communication with them that they don’t care anything about us. They just want you to vote for them when their re-election comes up. Graham just filed for the November election. If you live in SC and care about your pension vote for someone else. Scott dosen’t come up until 2022. Tom Rice, SC’s 7th Congressional District is also up for re-election this fall, so make sure you vote for someone else if your in the SC 7th district and care about your pension.
