Letter: Beem sees pension crisis through smoke, mirrors

As typical of every spendthrift liberal, Edgar Allen Beem wants to slay Chicken Little. He disconnects himself with fiscal sanity and tries to reinvent Economics 101. In this spirit he refuses to recognize the fiscal insanity of his liberal icons. Does he remember Sen. Kennedy’s bleating that Social Security was under control? Maybe because Sen. Kerry has the key to the Social Security lock box.

The worst part of Beem’s rant is that there is no problem with Maine’s retirement system. We can solve this problem by submitting the bill to my grandchildren and my great-grandchildren. Instead of praising Gov. LePage in his efforts, he is pining for a rerun of another Baldacci smoke-and-mirrors budget.
