ANSWER THE QUESTION
Bera for Congress calls on Lungren to answer Governor's question: Is it pensions or is it parks?
ELK GROVE, CA -- Sacramento agrees on one thing: Dan Lungren's spiked pension is hurting Californians. Yesterday Republican Governor Schwarzenegger took aim at spiked pensions like the one enjoyed by Lungren:
"Is it pensions or is it parks? Is it pensions or higher education? Is it pensions or childcare?"
How would Dan Lungren respond to these questions?
CBS-13 recently exposed how Lungren is double-dipping into taxpayer funds, collecting a taxpayer funded congressional salary while accepting a spiked, taxpayer funded pension from the state of California. In his final month as attorney general, Lungren accepted a 25.9% salary increase, which spiked his pension payouts by over $11,000.
"Before we devote one penny of taxpayer money for schools or kids, Californians will have to pay over $55,000 this year alone for Dan Lungren's spiked pension," said Lucinda Guinn, Bera for Congress campaign manager. "We call on Dan Lungren to answer Governor Schwarzenegger's questions - what's more important, his lavish, spiked pension, or education and healthcare for California's citizens?"
