Last night’s pension reform forum in San Rafael was a great venue to learn more about the pension problem and the different sides of this issue. It is extremely hard to change the system since the system itself is rigged to make it easy to block any reform at all. Right now the unions have the upper hand. Out of 21 unions in the state, not a single one has endorsed Governor Jerry Brown’s reform plan. It’s hard to solve a problem when one side always says, “No.”
Remember, my opponent Michael Allen is primarily funded by unions. If he gets elected, there will be no real pension reform at all.
