@marywalshnyt @nytimes Nice piece of Journalism Mary. The most vulnerable always suffer the most. When will we learn how bad /over financialisation in developed economies hinders not helps developing economies.

Thanks—not in a forgiving mood, and not in a learning mood either, I guess. https://t.co/NShorG0FKe

@marywalshnyt Regular pay raise. What Mark neglected to say was that same group spent four years frozen because of Rauner’s actions. Average in the raise over those years and it’s probably less than cost of living.

Unfortunately, the cost of living may be going negative now because of this shock. The projections are like nothing I’ve ever seen before and the Fed seems to be trying to prevent deflation. https://t.co/nViNWE3ZpE

Not Illinois. Not a dime. Pay raise coming July 1 for state employees. https://t.co/UTgXj0auwg

Is that a step pay raise or something else? https://t.co/RBhEx1mwwt

I would risk Covid to have a public debate over this nutty study claiming that public sector pensions generate net revenues for their states. https://t.co/1YSEVgyOub

Pension money is very powerful money, at least if it’s an Illinois pension, because Illinois doesn’t tax pensions. So $1 of Illinois pension buys more than $1 of ordinary income. But still, I think that would benefit the individual retirees, not the state budget.... https://t.co/xiSRrB3UA1

Me (to man strutting maskless down a six-foot sidewalk in #Hoboken): You're effectively blocking the sidewalk by not wearing a mask. Him: So walk in the street. Me: I am 71 and should walk in the street because you won't wear a mask? Him: F*** you. Questions to follow.

He’ll reincarnate down to an ant and get stepped in. https://t.co/BIfHZcktqp

Interesting, but why don’t we hear from the local police, the D.A., the medical examiner, etc.? https://t.co/x4pcXBK4bt

Nobody asked me, but I think the White House reporters should always ask in re infrastructure, ``but not including the Hudson River tunnel, right?''

@marywalshnyt Mary, in our numerous conversation I’ve frequently emphasized that Illinois’ iron-clad public pension guarantee incentives employed to seek higher current pay so as to kick in higher pension benefits at retirement.

But without adequate funding. https://t.co/uki3XpZfj0

@marywalshnyt Great article on Illinois seeking a bailout from Congress for its pensions and cities. We mentioned it in our newsletter: https://t.co/2ehDfbOS47

Thank you. https://t.co/4Ri2NcY95t

@marywalshnyt Shhhhhhhhhh [and yes, I know New York has an issue with this as well]

Roll the dates back, so they come due in 2021. After a while, though, the records must get awfully confusing. 🧾 https://t.co/MTzvYgyZY5

@marywalshnyt It's not just a matter of fairness, but also the leverage long-retired public pensioners have. - yes, they have political power... at the places they vote. If they've permanently moved to Florida.... - they don't have strike power. And current employees won't strike for them.

Wait, are you saying they can’t send in absentee-voter ballots from Florida? https://t.co/JEcXRJhk5s

@JanetheActuary @marywalshnyt They have done that with unpaid vendors for quite some time. I don't think they've ever dug up from under that pile

No they didn’t. Tried to with a bond sale a few years ago but there are still unpaid bills left.... https://t.co/AxsG1EybWp

@meepbobeep @marywalshnyt Long retired public pensioners are also to blame. They've consistently exerted pressure to divert pension funds to fund raises, job security, and keeping Cadillac benefits. Hartford Courant 5/20/75 - just a few years after the pension reserve was established. https://t.co/g8vG6TPzhk

Oh no! It isn’t usually explained so concisely as in this article.! https://t.co/oTG3fXHkKN

Quoted @ejhickey1

@marywalshnyt I hope our politicians can sneak this pension bailout through before taxpayers in the 49 other states realize what's going on. If we don't get that $$ we might have to pay for those pensions ourselves and that sucks.

I feel your pain. But normally the people who received the public services are the ones who pay for them. https://t.co/GfgiLZUALs
