Is Corbett Wrong to Call For Pension Reform?
It's only the biggest problem plaguing municipal government. But the state legislature is kicking the can down the road. Again. Ironically, Governor Corbett is not fighting the Democrats, but his own party.
His proposal only applied to future hires, and could not legally have any impact on teachers or government workers already enrolled in a plan. What Corbett was proposing is no different than what Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan did two years ago.
I can see only one reason for opposing the modest pension reform proposed - greed.
