Comment: It’s a “step in the right direction”? Ha! It calls for a 30% increase in taxpayer contributions each year for five years, at which time the annual contribution then becomes sufficient — on a numerically phony basis. That’s roughly the same schedule of can-kick we always see in pension proposals. It won’t happen, and there’s nothing in the proposal that would address the current unfunded liability, which will soar as the can is kicked.
