Ananich on GOP plan to close the educator retirement system

Contact: Sen. Ananich: Rosie Jones, (734) 657-6413,

Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich on the Republican plan to close the educator retirement system:

“Over the past six years I’ve watched Republicans go to great lengths to rig the system against the working person, but this takes the cake. Manufacturing a pension crisis in order to funnel more tax dollars into the pockets of their special interest supporters – at the expense of the men and women who educate our kids – is beyond irresponsible.

“Republicans are avoiding their normal budget process, and even avoiding their governor, all in the name of creating a ‘solution’ for our educator retirement system when no problem exists in the first place.

“If there’s a giant pot of money somewhere they should just fix the damn roads or give it back to the people.”
