Whatever your opinion of wikileaks you have to give them credit for the way they present the material they pilfer.
Using their search feature brought out another insight into how our next president* will handle the pension crisis that directly impacts millions of people already while most everyone else ignores it.

Ms. Blistan-Thank you for joining Hillary on the NEA hosted teletown hall this Wednesday. She appreciated the opportunity to listen to concerns and answer questions from NEA leadership from around the country. Unfortunately, as you note, there was not enough time to address everyone’s questions. The NEA forwarded along to the campaign your important question on the pension crisis and we were able to present the question to Hillary for response. Please find below her thoughts on the issue.
“We owe it to our seniors and working Americans to ensure that they can retire in dignity. I believe in the importance of meeting our commitments to retired public employees, and I know it is critical that we continue to protect defined benefit plans that provide a secure retirement benefit for workers. If workers hold up their end of the bargain by contributing their share from each paycheck, there is simply no excuse to shortchange those workers – and by extension their communities.”
Though possibly the most telling aspect of the Podesta emails is that whey you search for MPRA (the most significant intrusion by government bureaucrats into the pension crisis) all you get is this link. It’s not on their radar even at this late stage.
* The assumption that Clinton will win stems primarily from a drive home from work I took on election day 2009 when ‘reformer’ Chris Christie was challenging deeply unpopular Jon Corzine (whose ex-wife even turned on) through West Orange where Democrat operatives (could tell from their ‘Vote for Corzine’ vests) were going door-to-door. Though admittedly outside the political system it is hard for me to believe that these polls showing a tight race are not flawed because they do not take into account the massive amount of work party machines do on election day (robo-calling, driving senior citizens, email blasts – and that is only the legal stuff). Clinton has the Democrat machine behind her to do these things while Trump seems to have alienated a good chunk of those Republican cogs.
