Near the end of the 114th Congress, Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) introduced legislation that would begin to address the severe fiscal problems that face Social Security.

FreedomWorks Backs Pension Reform Proposed by Pennsylvania Senate

FreedomWorks today urged the Pennsylvania Senate to pass its version of reforms to the state pension programs, the State Employees’ Retirement System (SERS) and Public School Employees' Retirement System (PSERS). The Senate’s proposed “side-by-side” pension reform addresses the long-term crisis facing state pension programs in a comprehensive and responsible way, significantly reducing the risk to taxpayers. FreedomWorks has driven nearly 30,000 messages to senators urging them to pass the upper chamber’s proposed pension reform plan.

In Search of State Pension Reform

Recently, the public debt crisis in Puerto Rico has sparked widespread discussion about the need for public pension reform. The island territory is already $72 billion in debt, with shortfalls in the public pension fund of up to $30 billion. Without major changes in government spending patterns, Puerto Rico is in danger of becoming insolvent, sending the already brittle economy into a death spiral. While many on the left call for the immediate restructuring of Puerto Rico’s debt, the island’s plight is just the latest example of a state or territory misusing and abusing their public pension system, demonstrating the dire need for reform.
