house Bill H.R. 6377

Should Community Newspapers Get Better Terms for Servicing Their Pension Plans?

Argument in favor

Community newspapers that have frozen their pension plans should have better terms available to them in fulfilling their financial obligations so that they can continue to operate and provide locally oriented news. This bipartisan, commonsense bill provides needed relief.

Community or privately owned newspapers are facing declining readership. They need help to cover the costs of pension plans.

Argument opposed

While community newspapers fulfill an important role, the federal government shouldn’t allow them to choose an alternative funding system to service their pensions even if it means they go out of business or other industries have gone through a similar process.

    Seriously folks. End the fricking tariffs and the "robbing Peter to pay Paul" B.S. can end. Politicians need to be left with the consequences of their stupidity. Not ask us to pay for it.

    The print journalism needs to be held accountable to their obligations, even if it means they have to become bankrupt. If the business cannot generate enough support to be sustainable then it should go out of business.

    I am sorry but if you are failing as a media source, you are doing something wrong. But why should tax payers bail you out? It is your failure not ours. I still buy a weekly paper, but not the daily one. They just repeat news all week. Local news is far and few on the agenda. I also like to see both sides of political debate instead of nothing but Democrats.

    How about the mom and pop stores and ice cream parlors? Should not the tax payers guarantee everyone an income based upon someone else's ability to produce something of value that people want? Oh that would be some form of government controlled state. Hum Socialist maybe, Communist maybe, or how about dictator or plutocracy?
