Legislator pensions better funded than workers? Hmm...

A recent Lexington Herald-Leader article discusses how Kentucky's legislator pension plan is much better funded than the state workers' plan.

You do not have to get much past the title of the article before you say "Well, yeah, no kidding." Should it come as a surprise that those making the rules are somehow in better shape than the rest? Pension systems all over the state are in serious trouble and there needs to be swift and decisive action to get the state back on the right track.

Contact your legislator and ask them what they are doing to move significant pension reform forward in Kentucky.
