Re Public pensions: For people concerned about state workers making too much money from pensions, there is a simple solution. Raise state taxes on high income levels.

People who earn a high income from a pension would be giving a good chunk of it back to the state, and people who are on small pensions would be able to afford to live.

Wealthy individuals who have benefited most from society's infrastructure would be giving back to keep society strong. It is time to go back to having the most financially fortunate among us provide their fair share. Our country's wealth has been redistributed to the wealthy. It is time to reverse this trend.
