Your link wouldn't work for me, but I did get an interesting E-mail from my Teamster Local 728 today.
It said that a bill, called HR 2830, misnamed "The Pension Protection Act of 2006, is due to come up for a vote soon in the U.S. House of Representatives. This bill contains a "Red Zone" provision that will allow already earned retirement benefits to be cut from pension plans. Everyone is urged to call your House Representative and urge them to stand up for working families and vote against this bill. The Capitol Operator phone number is 202-224-3121. Your local Representative's office should be listed in the phone book, I'm sure you can e-mail them too. This is just what we need, my sorry Central States Pension to get even worse!
It opens fine. The first part is a commercial (in my case it was HP products) but after about 30 or so seconds it does open. When has the gov't done something and the something didn't get worse?
It's been at the behest and blessing of both political parties of equal share. Rome and it's empire wasn't built in a day and neither has the American Empire been either.
