This is my problem with the whole pension cut. (PBGC). Everywhere you read Congress and the pension fund deny that they are cutting our pension to save the PBGC. However when I was in DC. Every conversation was ended with if we wait and your plan fails it will break the PBGC. OK, then if we have to take a cut now and still have to pay more insurance money to the PBGC, will the PBGC remain solvent ? The answer is no they won't, so why take a cut and still pay more into the fund? The whole picture is to protect the government from funding the PBGC by changing ERISA. So all MEPF's will never be able to go to the PBGC, at the tune of 10 million retirees' over the next five years. HR83 of 2014, signed, sealed and delivered by your Congress and Senate and signed by your President. 161 pages of carefully crafted CYA words to allowed the ones who did not watch out for our pensions to be able to keep on doing it at an increase in pay. I really hope the Senate bill 2894, cutting the Directors and staffs pay equal to our cuts, goes thru as well. TWO days left and counting, Will Kenny even respond or just let the cuts happen?
