Defends pensions

25 Nov, 2014

Rauner states that pension benefits to retired state employees will not be affected despite campaign trail talk that he would slash benefits to retirees and current workers and lead a transition into a corporate-esque 401(k) arrangement.

Don’t modify or reduce anybody’s pension who has retired, or has paid into a system and they’ve accrued benefits. Those don’t need to change.
