Deserving the Pensions
Original post made

Please tell me how or why these gov't workers deserve these huge pensions.Lets see....they are overpaid while they are working,sit behind a desk,maybe or maybe not do a good job and for some reason are rewarded with pensions that are killing our cities and states.I would love for one of you to tell everyone why you EARNED this.I own a small business and have worked my #$% off for a long time and my pension is what I saved and put in a sep IRA.I have to invest it in this crazy stock market to get any return that will let me retire and be ok and we all know how that has been going since 2008.So why should these public employees be rewarded with all that they get.If it is legal everyone on these sweetheart deals should be cut and all thinking they are going to retire in a few years with one should be given a reality adjustment.We have a crisis and it is time to act like it and step up and do what needs to be done.If someone is on a promised 150k retirement they will survive on a 100k.Promises get broken everyday and these pensions were built on greed and people in power scratching each others back at our expense.For that matter people with assets of say 3- 5 mill or more should be denied social security.It is called social security and they are secure.I know they paid into it and by doing so they contributed to the security of our society......again it is social security not vacation money.
