Retired Teachers Will Get Pensions — 5 Comments

  1. Good. Pensioners paid their dues.

    As far as no pay without a budget maybe that will bring both sides to the table and be serious about it.

    Those who voted for Rauner and work for the state live with it and to those that didn’t vote shame on you and to those who voted for Quinn I am sorry you won’t get your pay.

  2. Patty and Mike would just borrow more, balanced budgets mean nothing to lefties.

  3. That is great.

    I was afraid we would need a tag day for the poor teachers.

  4. The state workers were paid in full during the 2007 & 2009 budget impasses.
