Illinois Legislators Hide from the Teachers & Public Workers Whose Pensions They Stole
We Are One Illinois created a massive Jan. 3, 2002 rally in the capitol to address the pension crisis created by state representatives. The representatives canceled their scheduled legislative session.The Illinois Education Association was a major organizer...The teachers and retirees who traveled hundreds of miles in the dead of winter from all over the state arrived at offices abandoned by the representatives... Because the state legislature has failed to pay the teachersí pension money into the pension fund for decades, this legalized pillage has been renamed a Pension Crisis.
Letís be perfectly clear about this. There is no pension crisis; there is a revenue crisis.
If lawmakers had not made laws that protect lawmakers from this fraud and theft, they would be in jail as people who did this same thing to private pension funds are. Jail. Crooks. Fraud. Theft.
Ask Ty Fahner....Fahner is currently the president of the Civic Committee of the Commercial Club of Chicago as well as the author and driving force of this pillage legislation. Yes, the president of a group of corporate tycoons wrote the present bill and attends legislative committee sessions. For some reason, though not elected, he writes bills and attends sessions which allow elected officials to misuse funds yet go unarrested for their malfeasance...
With a Democratic super-majority in both the senate and the house of representatives, this Republican Tea Party national proposal is being perpetrated on Illinois teachers. Democrapublicans...?
