The government pleaded with federal employees in the late 80’s to switch to the new TSP retirement fund. We could invest in very safe, safe and high risk world funds. We we’re told we would average 12 to 14 % on our investments. Down right lies. Now once again our law makers are attempting to strip the employees of their retirement choices in investments. Why isn’t congress subject to this sane retirement system. A regular federal employees has to invest his money’s and take the risk over years. Congressional members do not follow the same guidelines. Oh! They legislate, no risk even if they get voted out of office. They still receive a life time pension with no penalties. Hard to understand how Americans can trust their elected representatives.
