PLEASE SIGN Our Petition: Illinois Revenue and Debt Reform, Not Pension Reform! (Updated February 23rd)

PLEASE SIGN Our Petition: Illinois Revenue and Debt Reform, Not Pension Reform!

 

Many Illinois legislators want to challenge both Illinois and U.S. Constitutions instead of addressing the causes of the state's budget deficits. Illinois public employees have earned their pension. Their pension is a constitutionally-guaranteed contract.

 

That's why I created a petition to The Illinois State House, The Illinois State Senate, and Governor Pat Quinn, which says:

 

"Illinois has a pension debt and revenue problem. Most legislators know this, and they also understand the concept of justice and what lawfulness demands: that people must keep their covenants with one another. No justice is accomplished when diminishing public employees' earned benefits and rights because of decades of legislators' irresponsibility, corruption and incompetence. Stop Illinois pension reform. It is immoral and illegal."
