Digging A Pension Hole


It takes a long time to get in a hole as deep as the one the state finds itself in today.

It's going to take a long time to get out.

Over the last three decades, the politicians have been digging. Or to use another metaphor that the politicians like, they've been kicking the can down the road. We are just about at the end of the road. We are nearly at rock bottom.

But not quite yet.
