To the editor:

With all the vigorous discussion and vociferous debate about the future of pensions for public employees, I only have one question: What are our legislators in the Statehouse and Congress willing to sacrifice?

We have been saving for our retirements for years. We have paid into pension accounts our whole working life. Our pensions were promised to us for the work we did. Now our state legislators and Congress both want to penalize the very workers who are paying their salaries and help support the middle class in this whole country. What do these muckety-mucks have against hardworking people?
