The $4.7 Trillion Public Pension Crisis—An Interview with Lawrence McQuillan
Posted: Thu. June 25, 2015

Senior Fellow Lawrence McQuillan, author of California Dreaming, appears on KLIF radio in Dallas to discuss public pension crisis in America. In cities, counties and states across America, the pension funds for public employees are underfunded. Money that should be in the bank to pay promised retirement benefits isn’t there and the taxpayers are losing because of it. Vital services for cities are being cut to pay retirement benefits that were promised by politicians. In California, the politicians who made those promises to increase pension benefits, are no longer in office. McQuillan outlines what must be done to prevent more public bankruptcies.
