Kansas City Business Journal | Group rails against government pensions, names names
One of the largest taxpayer organizations in the United States is calling for reform of government worker pensions by revealing pension payouts to local officials, Fox4 reports.
Taxpayers United of America claims many government employees will become “pension millionaires” after they retire, with taxpayers footing the bill.
The group calculated the top 25 pensions for government employees in Wyandotte and Douglas counties.
Kansas City, Kan., Police Chief Rick Armstrong tops the list in Wyandotte County. If he retires at 55 and lives until he’s 85, the group estimates he will receive about $3 million in pension payments.
