Last week’s question: Do you think the legislature is doing enough about Pennsylvania’s pension crisis? Tell us why or why not?

Yes — 33 percent

No — 67 percent

From our LinkedIn group:

 

They need to get off the sidelines and get in the game, regardless of the potential political ramifications.

—Dan Christ

 

Is a pension a necessary requirement for employees? Sure it's great to have, but let's not confuse need with desire.

 

Maybe the legislature could ensure that more money is not promised that is not funded nor able to be funded in the meantime...

—David Foxwell

 

The Legislature should cut their salaries by 20% and hire more state workers in the Departments of Health, Welfare, and other state agencies that had to cut the staff below the minimum level.

—James Young

 

It's not just at the state. Even at the local level, this has a huge impact, with local governments forking out tens of thousands of dollars to cover pension obligations. It's a train that's been heading down the track since before I was elected to Elizabethtown Borough Council in 2007, and rather than actively work toward a solution politics gets in the way until the situation truly becomes a crisis.

—Jeff McCloud

This week’s question:

Is crowdsourcing a good way to raise money for businesses? Tell us why or why not.
