The following link will take you to a study titled “Promises Made Promises Broken, The Betrayal of Pensioners, and Taxpayers”. The report has determined that Oregon has the ninth worst PERS program, which will result in higher taxes for the Taxpayer and fewer benefits for public workers, if the Oregon state legislature does not do something about this problem. I think government employees should receive some type of pension plan, but it is going to have to come from the open market not programs sustained by tax dollars….Rob T.
