Press Release

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.

Generational Theft: The Shadow Progressives

The Fabian socialists over a century and a half ago knew that if their ideas were to spread efficiently, they would have to spread far enough to touch every bring and mortar of the political establishment.

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.

Generational Theft: Lack of Social Security Reform in 2016

Social Security funds are set to dry up by the year 2034. In an election cycle with a focus on foreign affairs, national security, and the economy and jobs, Social Security reform has largely remained off the radar. As a millennial paying into this program fully knowing I will never receive its benefits if the system continues its course, I decided to dig a little deeper into the candidates’ positions on this topic.

Generational Theft: How the Washington Political Establishment Is Robbing Millennials of Opportunity

"Generational theft," it's a harsh term but it's true. Every day, millions of Americans for paying into systems they will never see a return in, never utilize, never receive even adequate service from. Even worse, millions of people are paying into programs they don't want to participate in. The disheartening piece of the matter is that we aren't paying taxes simply to fund unpopular federal programs, we are paying taxes simply to pay off the interest and debt, hoping that one day we can start paying off what needed to be paid for in the first place. What have we done to ourselves? The better question at hand is what did our parents generation do to help get us here, and how does this affect the future of our posterity? Generational theft is not simply one generation of Americans who stole from another, it's the permanent enslavement to the debt we place on future generations who will inherit an inconceivable toll upon their entrance into the world.

Clock is Ticking on Entitlement Programs

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid, which were signed into law on July 30, 1965 by President Lyndon Johnson. These programs, along with Social Security, are collectively referred to as entitlement programs and are taking up a growing proportion of the annual budget. This problem is overshadowed by an even larger danger for Medicare and Social Security: their trust funds are about to dry up.

Unfunded State Pensions: The Next Economic Crisis

In the last decade we have had a housing crisis, a banking crisis and a car manufacturing crisis. If student loan debt does not catch up with us first, the next economic crisis is likely to be state and municipality pension debt.
