Bush Gets One... Right?

One of my personal hot buttons is the corporate war on pensions. Glad to see Chimpy say something about it, whether or not he's closing the barn door after the horses have left.

Eschaton: Credit Where Credit is Due: "Now for the good of the workers, we need to strengthen the rules governing private pensions, as well. You know, most Americans work for private companies that offer traditional pensions. And most companies, like this one, are fulfilling their obligations to their employees and their retirees. But too many companies are not putting away the cash they need to fund the retirement promises they're making to their employees. In other words, they're saying, we'll make sure you got a retirement system, but they're not funding it."
