PRESS FOR KENTUCKY FRIED PENSIONS
CHRIS TOBE KNOWS ABOUT THE PENSION SYSTEM And his new book about how screwed Kentucky's pension system is a must read. The collapse is imminent even as politicians in the State Legislature crow about how they solved the pension problem. They didn't even sniff a solution. This book should be required reading for every member of the House and Senate. I'll have Chris on at 10am today to discuss it. Find the book at Carmichael's and in Frankfort at Poor Richards.
