  •  2009 - 34 = 1975 How was I wrong? (0+ / 0-)

    Your wife was in the old CSRS, not the current FERS system which has been in place since 1982. (I even said "1982" in my comment.) People who pay into FERS also pay Social Security tax.

    Note that I said "a lot", not "all".  I also specifically mentioned federal employees.  I have no idea what every local system does, nor did I pretend to do so.

    No where did I advocate "pulling the plug" on anyone's pension.  You're confusing my very limited comment with someone else's words.
