Please help to stop the attack against active and retired teachers in Illinois.

Imagine a law written by lawmakers who are actively breaking the law while also violating their oath of office. Now, imagine that the law is meant to steal the active and/or retired teachers legally deferred compensation (pensions) in Illinois. Now, imagine that the same law will steal from nearly all state employees and retirees on Dec. 3, 2013.
It is not necessary to imagine. It is reality. The vote is scheduled.

TP1The significant issue of pension reform is its attack on public employees’ rights to constitutionally-guaranteed, earned compensation and the legislators’ obligation to safeguard those promises. An unconscionable constitutional challenge of those rights and earned benefits generates a serious threat to their secure sense of worth as citizens and creates the unfair possibility for an economic disadvantage for a particular group of people and their families. This can never be legally or morally justified.”

“If we in Illinois have nearly the highest rate of required contributions historically and nearly 80% of us get no social security, how could we be the only state in the union with such a miserable funded ratio? Was it us? I don’t think so, and yet the bond companies warn Illinois to fix the problem — not screw the workers, break their oaths, and create an educational wasteland into the next century.”

The political solution ready for Tuesday’s vote is insane; it does NOT solve the financial problem. It actually worsens the state’s debt/revenue crisis under the mask of political gamesmanship.
