Pension Games: A WGN Special Report

pension-gamesPick any survey, any study and you’ll find Illinois ranks dead last in the country with the amount of money owed to public pensions.  It’s a scary number.

Yet what’s even more frightening is there no painless solution.

And even though the state’s politicians have for years led us down this dark road, along the way they never failed to line the pension pockets of their cronies and political supporters.

Join us Monday as we revisit who we’ve exposed and also press these state leaders on how they’re fixing the mess.
