True in 2011
"Rhode Island has the second highest per enrollee (Medicaid) cost of any state in the country, which is 60 percent higher than the national average."

"The pension fund in the city of Providence is only 30 percent funded, about the same level as when he [Taveras] took office."
True Sept. 30, not so much since
"Providence has more of its pension fund invested in hedge funds and is less transparent" about it than the state.
Not just under, WAY under
"The average 401(k) in America of a person who's 60 years old is under $100,000."
