Let's take one item, Jean from Queens, and that is teacher and public employee pensions.

Nobody is proposing to renege on pensions for teachers and other public employees who are already retired or near retirement. The taxpayers will need to take a big hit to pay off those pensions.

However, these pension plans are unsustainable in the long run and it is essential to convert such plans into defined contribution plans, the same as virtually all employees in the private sector.

The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.

The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.

So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.

Lois Lerner's attorney, William W. Taylor III, previously represented Dominique Strauss-Kahn, among other high profile clients.

For someone who probably bills close to $1,000 per hour, he sure gave his client lousy advice and exposed her to prosecution for a gratuitous statement.

Wonder who is paying his fee?

Public employee pensions are smaller with fewer benefits than private sector employees pensions.
