    I think that might be Sylvester Schieber.

    Where can I read this policy paper?

    That sounds as if he knows what he's talking about, he even mentioned FDR, and his bio says he's a VP at a well known consulting firm. Why not just trust the man?

    I suppose we could ask the Iron Workers, Local No. 25, of Michigan.

    On 23 March 2007, Watson Wyatt settled a lawsuit by the pension fund trustees of the Iron Workers, Local No. 25, of Michigan. The lawsuit alleged that the pension plan was underfunded as a result of the company's actuarial work. Under the settlement, Watson Wyatt paid $110 million but did not admit any wrongdoing.
    Yeah, but didn't the Progressive Regressive Policy Institute help Clinton with welfare reform?

    Yes, they did and have you noticed poverty has increased since then?

    Nice trust fund ya got there. Be a shame if something were to happen to it.

    Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.
