Information: We all like our teachers and agree they should have a fully funded pension after years of hard work and service to our children, but debt financing their pension to the tune of $3 BILLION is not the answer.

What the legislature needs to do is pass a budget that cuts spending and finds ways to raise revenue without increasing tax rates, but by attracting more business to Kentucky.
