Pension consultants: ‘This is a disaster’

  • August 17, 2021

By LISA SCHOEGERBERGMANThe Associated Press – WASHINGTON (AP) — Pension consultants are predicting that Congress and President Donald Trump will cut federal retirement benefits for millions of retirees over the next several years, but they say their work has not been enough to make a difference.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its latest analysis Thursday, predicting that about 10 million workers will lose their pension benefits by 2023 under the GOP tax overhaul and the GOP-led Congress.

“Congress and the White House have made it clear they will cut Social Security and Medicare and other vital programs that benefit workers,” said Alan Cole, chief executive of the Washington, D.C.-based Institute for Governmental Studies.

“What the CBO says is that there are going to be cuts in retirement benefits.”

The report comes on the heels of a major tax bill that Republicans passed this month that would cut Social.

& Medicare and expand the Earned Income Tax Credit, among other provisions.

“The CBO is warning that cuts in Social Security benefits, Medicare benefits, and other programs will have a devastating impact on the lives of millions of Americans who have been working their whole lives,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

“This is unacceptable.”

A White House spokesman called the CBO’s analysis “a disgrace” and said the administration supports lawmakers making hard choices on how to cut spending.

“There is no reason why any middle-class American should pay more to keep the promise of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid,” the spokesman said in a statement.

The report is the latest blow to the GOP plans to pass the tax overhaul next year, which includes major changes to the Medicare program, which could lead to cuts in benefits for many retirees, and could also force the administration to cut the $5 trillion cost of the tax cuts.

Trump has promised that his administration would not cut Social security or Medicare benefits.

The administration is currently trying to negotiate with Democrats on a compromise plan that would increase benefits, but the issue has not yet been resolved.

The budget office’s analysis is based on the Joint Committee on Taxation, which estimates how the tax bill will affect individual taxpayers and the economy.

But the report doesn’t account for the tax changes that Republicans have introduced, such as lowering the top tax rate and eliminating deductions for business owners and wealthy individuals.

Trump’s aides have previously told reporters they have no idea how many of the roughly 40 million people who receive benefits under the government program will see their benefits reduced under the Republican plan.

The administration has argued that the cuts to Social Security will be paid for by cutting other benefits, including Medicaid, which is administered by the states.

The CBO says there are no plans in place to help millions of low-income Americans, including many who qualify for Medicaid, pay for their benefits through tax credits.

Trump and the Trump administration have been touting the tax plan as a boon for the middle class and have promised to help many Americans who don’t qualify for any other tax relief.

The White House said Thursday that the tax cut would increase economic growth by $4 trillion over the first decade, which would have helped more than 1 million Americans, many of them working, with no cost to the economy in the first year alone.

The White House has also projected the cost of cutting benefits will be about $2 trillion over 10 years, according to its own analysis.

But experts say the economic growth would have been much lower without the tax breaks.

“In the first few years of the bill, this is a tax cut that would generate economic growth in the United States of about 1.5 percent,” said Chris Dye, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute who studies the effect of tax cuts on the economy, in an email.

“The impact would have dropped substantially if it had not included tax breaks that help the wealthy and help corporations, and they’re not in there.

But for now, they have an enormous cost.”

How pension consultants helped Republicans win the White House

  • July 19, 2021

The pensions of some senators and members of Congress were used to finance Republican candidates and campaigns, including presidential nominee Donald Trump and his GOP allies.

The payments were approved by a bipartisan group of senators and representatives.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is one of them.

He has said he used the payments to support the party’s presidential campaign.

“My pension and other benefits have been used by my staff, my wife, my family and myself,” Schumer said in a statement in January.

Trump has denied that he used his own money to pay for the pensions of his staff and for his campaign.

The Senate Finance Committee is investigating the payments, but Schumer said Tuesday that “there was no collusion with the campaign” and “there’s no indication that anything like that ever occurred.”

The Associated Press reported in April that the payments were authorized by a special bipartisan committee and that the committees “authorized the payments based on a recommendation from the Senate Finance committee.”

The payments are supposed to be used for retirement and pension planning for members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, called on Senate Democrats to review the payments.

“We need to be transparent and transparent about what we’ve done and what we’re going to do to ensure that these payments are going to be repaid,” Flake said Tuesday on the Senate floor.

Flake said the payments would be reviewed by the nonpartisan Office of Government Ethics.

A Senate Finance report on the payments was issued last month.

The committee recommended that the committee review the reimbursement of a senator’s pension by a contractor hired by his office, but did not specify the contractor.

The report said that the Senate’s ethics office was unaware of any instances of the payments being used to pay off the senator’s debt, which could amount to more than $30,000.

Flake did not say Tuesday whether the Senate Ethics Committee would review the Senate Democrats report on whether the payments should be reviewed.

A spokesman for the Senate ethics office said Tuesday he did not have any information to share on the review process.

Trump, who was not named in the Senate report, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Democratic-controlled Senate Finance panel is also investigating the Trump campaign’s use of a $1.9 million payment from a company called E.T.G.S., which provides legal services to the Republican National Committee.

The company is owned by Republican donors.

The Republican National committee has said that it did not know about the payments until after the report was released in April.

Trump did not directly respond to the ethics committee’s report.

He had said earlier this month that he “never made any payments to my campaign,” and he later said that he had made “a couple of million dollars.”

But he did say that “I did make a couple of millions of dollars” in the past, and that “the only way they can make it right is if I’m going to pay it all back.”

In the wake of the AP investigation, a spokesman for Trump’s campaign said Tuesday it had provided a “full accounting” of the money.

He also said that “it would be premature” to discuss any possible ethics concerns.

“It would be wrong to speculate about whether Mr. Trump’s payments to his staff would violate the law, or that he may have made illegal payments in the future,” Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller said.

The AP reported that the company paid more than 2,000 lawyers for Trump and other Republican presidential candidates for work on the Trump-related campaign.

E.

T.G., which bills itself as “a world leader in the technology industry,” said Tuesday in a news release that it “supports the principles of integrity, fairness and transparency in politics.”

It did not name the lawmakers whose pensions it paid.

The companies that hired the lawyers include E. L. Kent, a law firm that has represented the Trump Organization in numerous litigation matters, and Paul, R. Lueber, a partner at the firm, which has also represented the Republican candidate’s campaign.

Miller said E. F. Kent’s contract with Trump did have an obligation to the candidate to make “reasonable efforts” to disclose payments to E. E L. and Paul.

The Associated Public Interest Research Group, which is studying the payments for the AP, said Tuesday the AP’s report “should have prompted lawmakers to demand the resignation of the former President Donald Trump.”

The AP story said E T. G. S. and E. R. Kent had “been hired by the Trump Campaign to represent Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.”

Trump’s lawyer, Alan Garten, also issued a statement Tuesday saying that “no campaign employees have ever made any improper payments to Senator Flake or any other member of the United States Senate.”

Garten said that in the event that any of Trump’s employees have done so, “the Senate Ethics Commission would take appropriate action to terminate that employee

Lockheed Martin’s Pension Plan Is In The Hands Of A ‘Pension Fraud’ Teamster

  • July 18, 2021

Lockheed Martin Pension Plan In The Hand Of A Fraud Teamster, the union representing the company’s 2,300 union workers is claiming, and the company is denying.

A letter sent to Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson and other company officials in March, titled “Lockheed Martin Pension Contribution Fraud,” claims that Lockheed Martin has “a longstanding, systemic pattern of misclassification and misreporting of employees’ pension benefits.”

It is signed by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Teamsters International Union, Teamster Local 1189, and Teamsters United.

Lockheed Martin “has been identified in a number of instances as a fraudulent company with a history of mis-classification of pension contributions,” the letter states.

Lockheed’s pension plan is “a complex system that requires management oversight and has been subject to numerous audits,” according to the letter, which was obtained by Breitbart News.

The company is under investigation by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which is looking into allegations that the company improperly deducted money from the pension plans of some of its most senior executives.

Lockheed said in a statement that it “does not tolerate or condone the misclassifying of workers’ pension contributions and the use of false or misleading information to inform pension contributions to the company.

Lockheed does not have the ability to directly discipline or terminate employees who engage in such misclassifications.”

The SEC said that Lockheed was “in the process of conducting a review of the company.”

“We take our responsibilities to protect investors and employees seriously, and will provide updates on the status of the investigation,” Lockheed said.

In response to the allegations, Lockheed said that it is “aware of the allegations and taking them seriously.

Our employees have a right to a fair and accurate pension contribution, and we are dedicated to making sure that those contributions are accurately and properly recorded.”

The company also noted that it has “continued to conduct internal investigations into these allegations.”

The Teamsters Union is now calling on Lockheed Martin to “immediately and publicly explain how it will ensure that the pension contributions are properly recorded on all of its accounts and in all forms.”

The union says the company should “implement a comprehensive pension management system for all employees and ensure that all pension contributions have been properly recorded and accounted for.”

Lockheed said it is reviewing the letter.

“As we continue to investigate the allegations,” Lockheed Martin added, “we are committed to addressing any issues as they arise, including any potential changes to our pension plan.”

“As a company, Lockheed Martin is committed to providing our workers and retirees with a safe and sound retirement,” said Teamsters president Jim Hoffa.

“The Teamsters are calling on the company to immediately and publicly disclose any changes to its pension plan, including whether any employees are eligible to participate in the plan, the amount they will receive, and any changes that are necessary to ensure that every person in the company can retire with dignity.”

Lockheed Martin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Teamster Union is a coalition of more than 300,000 Teamsters unions, representing more than 1.6 million workers in more than 140 countries, including Canada.
