Keeping Retirement Weird. Senator Biss’ view on pension theft seems to have changed. Activism works.




Back in 2013, Skokie Senator Dan Biss’ name was synonymous with pension theft.
He was then, and is now, a liberal Democratic member of the Illinois General Assembly.
Some suspect he is one of those who has his eyes on the Governor’s Mansion now that Governor Rauner is considered one of the most vulnerable Republicans in the country.
Before the Illiinois Supreme Court ruling affirming the pension protection clause, Biss had plenty of opportunities to defend his pension theft position. Trust me, we retirees can be a pain in the ass.
As in the video above of our 2013 visit to the Senator’s Skokie office..
Recently a retired teacher activist Sharon Hayhurst forwarded to me a letter she received from Senator Biss after she asked him about his current position on pensions.
Dear Sharon,
