RECENTLY ON TOL:

As to the comment that state workers get million dollar retirement. As a state worker I know not one person who will get anywhere near that. With the last PERS overhaul I have to save over $400 a month myself to retire at 65 with my same salary.
I think we all want services but when increase taxes are proposed most say no. We need to pay up or expect less. Less police, less in road maintainence, bridge safety, and social services that in the olden times churches took care of as best they could.
I also worry how to pay for all this when the bill is due and what if it doesn't work.
