City of Pritchard, AL Declares Bankruptcy Due to Pensions
Pension System Busted Country Wide
It is highly likely that nearly every pension plan in the country is busted. The solution is for every city and municipality in a predicament to “pull a Vallejo” and declare bankruptcy. Please see Judge Rules Vallejo Can Void Union Contracts for details.
Deficiencies cannot be met on the backs of taxpayers. Enough is enough. It’s time to end every massively underfunded public defined benefit plan in the country, by force if necessary (bankruptcy), unless unions agree to major concessions that would make the plans viable without raising taxes one cent.
