Sen. DeMint Joins Opposition to Federal Bailout of State Pension
State officials made the mess; they should clean up after themselves
The Illinois Policy Institute launched "No Pension Bailout," a national movement to block Congress' attempts to rescue failing state and municipal pension plans.
U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., joined John Tillman, the institute's CEO, on Thursday in presenting a study, proving any bailout would punish responsible states and reward reckless ones. The study shows the winners and losers by state and county.
