Statements about Pensions
"Our pension system is the only one in the country that’s 100 percent funded."
Says Barack Obama has pension investments that include Chinese firms, and "investments through a Caymans trust."
The Wisconsin Retirement System for public employees is "a self-funded pension plan" and "it’s the money of the workers’ that funds it."
Says Gov. Scott Walker is "openly" backing a move to abolish the state retirement system and convert it to a 401(k)-style plan that will reduce pensions "by at least a third" for current and retired public employees
