CLEAN... ENERGY

Offshore wind farms from New Jersey to Virginia took a big step closer to reality with the completion of a review that showed the renewable energy source would not cause major environmental damage, officials said today. Wind projects off the coasts of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and New Jersey are being studied. The Mid-Atlantic lease proposal follows the Cape Wind project in Massachusetts that was given the go-ahead in 2010 after 9 years of federal review."No developer should have to wait nine or 10 years," for approval, Salazar said. The response from the developers was "DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"

No , I'm describing a "defined pension plan " And some if not all are paid into by both company and employee ! And what do you call it when an employee gets a raise and decides to put part of that raise into their pension ? is that the employees money or the companies ?

Defined pension programs are funded by the company you worked for and require no contribution on your part. Your describing a defined contribution program.

As far as SS is not a pension but more of a safety net. That is why so many people hurt in retirement because they don't save enough and have no pension.

I know a number of people who are collecting pensions in Marietta and also collection SS. The one thing in common is that none had a union job.

How typically Democratic, ignore the promises made by Demo politicians for exuberant pension benefits that, by the time it's time to pay up with no funding to back their 'promises, their already comfortably in THEIR retirements.

Look around and tell me how many defined pension plans are still around !

defined pension for public pensions, you know, the ones funded by taxpayers,are the one mostly in trouble. Union Funded politicians kept signing the contracts with no way to pay them. (Detroit).

GM went belly up because it went from a car maker to a health insurance company who made cars.

Common thread-Unions.

I am not sure why the Democrats are so stressed out about infrastructure jobs. Those are construction jobs so they are temporary and not permanent jobs.

Then explain why defined pension plans did fine for 50 years and then all of a sudden they became insolvent ! Again the truth and facts jump up and bites you on the arse !Anti -union shop steward~~~The moronic irony of that statement speaks for itself.

" fiduciary malfeasance" is the term and it ran rampart when companies were turned loose on workers money !

How typical of a republican to forget !There wasn't anything amiss with any defined pension plans until Ronald Reagun let the administrators shirk their responsibilities and allowed them to "invest" pension money in the stock market !Thereby releasing them of their regular payments toward said plans ! All it amounted to was a lot more money toward their bottom line !
