    ❗️❗️ It would be nice if we just could blame the last administration for our problem with our pension. The sad fact is this has been an on going problem since 1982. That’s when the D.O.L was appointed to watch over our pension funds . Because of their gross mismanagement of our funds and total lack of priorities we are very close to insolvency. The D.O.L fail their responsibility to enforce ERISA that would have prevented the loss of BILLIONS of dollars . Our money was also protected by a Federal Agency (PBGC) that guaranteed pensions in this country that is also on the verge of Financial ruins. If we do not come up with a solution fast bankruptcy will become the norm. These are pension that were paid into by taxpayers. Eventually 10 million seniors will have to suffer the consequences of what happens when the government turns a blind eye to retirees in this country. So far this video has been viewed 1.4 million times , please share. It is another way of getting our story out to the public ❗️❗️ Thank You TDU for posting
