Pensioners don’t deserve the blame

It is unfortunate that people like Vern R. Klenz [“Sweeteners have been the pension problem,” The Reader’s Voice, Jan. 8] blame the underfunding problems with the Illinois pension systems on the retirees, and fail to acknowledge that for many years, the administrations and the Legislature did not pay into the systems what they were called upon to do by the pension actuaries.
