I would like to understand

I would like to understand why no other media outlets are covering this issue? I looked at the source for this report...this is a highly conservative think tank who basically wants all state retirement benefits to disappear in order to lower taxes. This organization also sounds like the John Locke Foundation...another conservative think tank that constantly complains about state government, wasteful spending, etc. Wasteful spending starts the moment you elect a person into office. People mortgage their ethics to get elected. They raise money by making promises, regardless of their party affiliation, and then bring back pork home. If you want taxes lowered, then EVERYBODY must stop making promises. Being that isn't going to happen anytime soon, do away with political parties period. The state's retirement system is a benefit that employees are promised to receive. They should still get it. If it's the contract, then you get it.
