Retirement in the United States is in crisis. Many of us can feel the American Dream slipping away. Our ability as a nation to sustain our economy at a time when a record number of workers are entering their retirement years should be an important part of our national debate.
Retirement security for all should be a national priority. To accomplish that, we need your help to propose and develop new and innovative solutions.
We ask you to put aside partisanship and give serious consideration to a partnership between the public and private sectors. For the last 100 years public pensions have proven to be the most cost-effective vehicles for both taxpayers and pensioners to ensure a safe retirement. When properly funded by legislatures and employee contributions, these pensions are a model of how retirement policy can work at the national level.
You can help ensure retirement security for all Americans while protecting taxpayers by increasing the nation’s savings rate rather than adding to the nation’s deficit.

Why does this matter? We believe retirement security for ALL Americans lies in a partnership between the public and private sectors. What works for some should work for all.
