Christie:YourPensionIsAnEntitlement

Christie says if you're a retired Civil Service worker  your pension is an ENTITLEMENT, if you disagree go to Brick town hall next week, Lake Riviera school.

This gets me very concerned and angry. I worked for the State for 26 years at a reduced salary for three reasons; 1) health benefits, 2) job security, 3) THE PENSION! To say it is an entitlement is wrong, it was a contractual agreement for the worker. He does not need his pension to live, I do.

On the other hand look up the word "entitles" means someone EARNED it and the benefit cannot be taken away for any reason- it is contractual. Civil service laws were passed to assure legal GUARANTEES of the codified "entitlements"and cannot be plundered because an elected phoney official wants it that way.

Is that kind of like when you are traveling on The George Washington Bridge you are entitled to travel safely, and not be put in danger by lanes closures, which were done only because of a political agenda?
