Worst Funded Pensions in Nation

Illinois holds the dubious distinction of having the worst-funded public pension system in the nation. The state’s system is around $100 billion in debt and has enough assets to cover less than 40% of the debt the state owes. Additionally this worst-in-the-nation distinction has been a major contributing factor to Illinois having the worst credit rating in the nation.

Senator Duffy's Fall 2013 Survey

Dear Friends,

In 400 BC the great philosopher, Plato, is credited with saying, “those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.” If you think Springfield politicians have made some bad mistakes or would like to express your opinion, this is your opportunity to get engaged and speak out.

I am an optimistic individual and I sincerely believe that Illinois’ best days are ahead of us. I enthusiastically represent the people of the 26th Senate District in the Illinois General Assembly because I feel public service is truly an honorable duty. We need to make some tough decisions in order to get our state back on track and it is imperative that we do not make a bad situation worse.

I need your input.

Other concerns have been raised about the possibility of identity theft and other scams, as well as concerns about how this law could affect part-time workers. Continue reading for a full roundup.
