  1. Be sure to save some money for Illinois Pension Scam by Bill Zettler.

    This is the most important book about the biggest fiscal problem in Illinois.

    The most important section is 1.1 (Chapter 1, section 1):

    IL Pensions – More than 130 benefit increases since 1970 are the major cause of unfunded liability.

    Most of those 130 benefit increases were passed when the pensions were already underfunded.

    In terms of teacher pensions, every single benefit increase was passed when the teacher pension system was already underfunded.

    That is a pension scam if there ever was one.

    A disgraceful use of the political process to benefit what was and still arguably is the most powerful special interest group in the state, the teacher unions.
