HARMFUL “REFORM” LEGISLATION SHELVED … FOR NOW

|| By FITSNEWS ||  South Carolina Senators pushing a pension fund “reform” bill have shelved their efforts after this website exposed the proposed legislation as nothing more than a power grab on behalf of the fund’s corrupt leaders.

According to our sources this “reform” bill  – which would have stripped away multiple layers of accountability – will not be favorably referred out of a Senate subcommittee anytime soon.  And while it’s “not dead yet” (cue the old man from Monty Python and the Holy Grail), efforts to push the bill quietly through the legislative process have clearly failed.

Good …

South Carolina’s pension fund is a disaster.  Each year its leaders hand out massive bonuses to the very bureaucrats who labor to produce some of the worst results of any large pension fund in America (at the highest price, too).

S.C. Treasurer Curtis Loftis has been dutifully exposing and opposing the incompetence and corruption of pension fund leaders for years … at great political risk to himself.  He led the opposition to this legislation – and is reportedly planning to reach out to Senators this coming week with his thoughts on real reform.

We’ve consistently supported Loftis’ efforts … and are glad to see his enemies’ latest ruse against him come to naught.

The new bill reminds me of when the Investment Commission tried to take itself private back in 2010. They wanted head bureaucrat Bob Borden to open an office in Charleston, spend $15 million on it, pay Wall Street salaries-and give Bob Borden a 15% ownership!

15% of all those billions! Thankfully, the Budget and Control Board shot them down. State Treasurer Curtis Loftis and a handful of Senators are trying to kill it in the Senate. The House hates the plan and so does the Governor, but it is best to stop it now!

Call your senator and tell him to protect your retirement!

I hear this bill allows the Investment Commission to pay virtually unlimited salaries. Can you imagine state employees making $1,000,000 or more?

Stop the madness!

Reply
James March 22, 2015 at 3:26 pm

Some already make $600,000 each. Add to that %30 in fringe benefits and you get $800,000 per year for a state employee! .

The State Senate, except for Kevin Bryant and Joel Lourie, are not keen on this bill. Bryant and Lourie are doing it because Leatherman gave them orders, but few others like it. I think it will no pass out of the Senate.

The Retirement System is the largest pot of money in State government and yet so few people understands how it works. This bill makes it even harder for the participants, taxpayers and others to get unbiased information.

Please put a halt to this bill. Please stop playing with my retirement.

its not leaving the money on the table. do i think the fees are high, yes. but you don’t make the required rate of return by investing the the volatile stock market and fixed income (earning what…2%).

They have diversified the portfolio fully. Now it is time to work on the negotiations with managers, evaluate returns vs fees, etc. There is still work to be done, but don’t act like 28 billion invests itself, and every fee being paid is a bad thing.

A retiree March 22, 2015 at 6:39 pm

There are two basic inaccuracies in this article, the most glaring being the report that the bill will not be reported out of subcommittee. The bill was reported out of subcommittee by a unanimous vote. The second inaccuracy is that the bill was being quietly pushed through the legislative process. This bill is the result of over a dozen subcommittee meetings over the past year, all of which were open to the public and most of which were videotaped. At the suggestion of the State Treasurer, sworn testimony was taken from a number of individuals representing the agencies involved, the Inspector General, Funston Advisory Services, consultants, stakeholders, and the State Treasurer. Before a vote was taken the Subcommittee invited comments from stakeholders and the State Treasurer. The Treasurer apparently declined to speak but instead sent a staff member with a letter that claimed among other things that passage of the bill would raise taxes, increase the unfounded liability, endanger the State’s credit rating and could lead to fraud and abuse. The Subcommittee asked that the State Treasurer provide documentation of his allegations before a final vote was taken. The State Treasurer never provided the requested information. Based on what I have observed over the past several years as an interested retiree is that it is unlikely Mr. Loftis will offer meaningful suggestions to reduce the fiduciary morass that currently exist.

Of course the bill was reported out of committee. We all know that. Now it goes to the full committee. I understand it will not be a priority, hence the story.

Also when the treasurer was asked to comment on the bill, instead of showing up himself he sent a representative from the office with a letter written by Loftis. When asked if he would read the letter for the record the representative said “i am not authorized to read it”

Slartibartfast March 22, 2015 at 11:09 pm

There is a history here, which is being purposefully overlooked. It’s the history of promises made to State workers. They were promised that, if they worked for piss-poor salaries, they could, at least, depend on a portion of that piss-poor salary, with COLAs, until they died.

Understand, it doesn’t matter whether it was a stupid idea, or that it is being policed poorly, or that portions have been messed with. To the tens of thousands who were promised, IT IS A PROMISE.

Can the system be changed for the better for those who have ten years or less? Certainly. Can it be run more honestly? Yep. And the system should really be phased out over the next 30 years.

But whether you are a conservative or a liberal, your honor is on the line.

Reply
truthmonger March 23, 2015 at 1:04 pm

I’ll disagree with you on phasing out the pension system. A while back, Boston College did a study on pensions vs. 401K programs. Against expectations, it clearly demonstrated that pension systems were more beneficial to both (larger)businesses AND employees. The larger the business, the greater the benefits. For large companies (and governments), the only real winner with 401K plans were the plan administrators. Now, lets remember that the plan admins are private businesses making money off of plans. Their interests are not focused on the business or the employee, but rather on THEIR business. Their interest may be focused on pushing a certain investment for reasons OTHER than actual performance.

How about we allow police to form unions to protect their interests against the interests of businesses and administrators?

Reply
Slartibartfast March 23, 2015 at 1:15 pm

I’m very wary of “studies.” Besides, the “pushing” occurs in pensions as well as 401Ks. I’m totally against unions. It’s the lazy man’s way of negotiating, and it always, over time, ends in tears for both sides. If your labor is that necessary, you should be starting your own company.

If a guy is a sloppy housekeeper and awakens to find his home on fire, due to his negligence, does he furiously fight the fire or crap out and blame someone else. That’s what I mean by honor. People are waking up to the fact that our Palmetto home is very much on fire. The question is, do we have enough for a fire brigade?

“If a guy is a sloppy housekeeper and awakens to find his home on fire, due to his negligence, does he furiously fight the fire or crap out and blame someone else. ”

At any point in time, he can immediately fire the housekeeper in question, unlike the act of voting, which is a one time event that impacts how the “job” is done for years.

Apples to oranges my friend.

“I understand your cynicsm and frustration.”

No, you mistake cynicism and frustration for a realistic view on the situation.

Firing the housekeeper doesn’t put out the fire. Not voting is a vote. No apples. I’m no collectivist. And you ARE frustrated.

TroubleBaby March 27, 2015 at 10:29 am

“Firing the housekeeper doesn’t put out the fire.”

Steps to putting out a fire:

#1 Stop whatever is causing the fire from continuing to do so.(in this case, stupid voters, which you can’t stop)

#2 Put out the fire.

If you try to put out a fire without stopping the person lighting more you’ve done nothing.

“Not voting is a vote.”

lol…nope…black doesn’t equal white

“I’m not a collectivist.”

With all due respect, you are:

“If a guy is a sloppy housekeeper and awakens to find his home on fire, due to his negligence”

Equating the mass empowerment of stupid people via the vote with individual “sloppiness” is collectivism my friend.

Plenty of questions need answers.

There’s significant evidence of fraudulent activity coming from the State Treasurer’s Office. How was the Treasurer’s Office able to pay the Bank of New York Mellon’s custody bill’s last summer and fall? Were funds diverted from other agencies and budgets such as DMV funds? Do Chief of Staff Clarissa Adams’ initials appear on the approval form for the diversion of these funds? How much did this six figure payment cost? Did the legislature give approval in the state budget? Why has so much money been diverted from Unclaimed Property this year? Did Curtis or Clarissa approve this transaction? What is it paying for? Why have fees increased so much in the Local Government Investment Program? What are they paying for? Who are the contract employees making hundreds of dollar every hour they work to implement an IT system? Have there been cost overruns? How much did settling the Amick case cost the taxpayer? Did Curtis break the law? Did he settle it to avoid it coming up the primary?How much does the State still owe the Bank of New York? Why does the State owe money after the lawsuit was settled? Did the settlement funds come in as cash? Or was it a reduction in the amount the State owes Bank of New York?

Asperger syndrome in adults includes repetitive vulgar statements, violent temper , difficulties getting along with others, leaving a conversation abruptly, leaving a room abruptly, breaking and throwing things.. So, Seth, Patsy, Mitch, Tell, Kerry and more.. check Asperger syndrome. Interesting and could be of benefit to you all.

I think the pigs running this corruption operation, getting fat ass bonuses, all need to be shown how a baseball bat is properly swung in a major league game.

I agree! Retirees make $20,000. Retirement commission make 600,000 bucks per year.
That ain’t right.

PissedOffRetiree March 23, 2015 at 6:08 pm

Basic fact is that they are gonna fuck us all. I had 32 years in, and am a retiree – but am of the age (retired 22 years ago) that they didn’t pay us very much (perhaps 52% of the “civilian equivalent”), and expected us to work “overtime” and not take “compensatory time” which, while not “time and a half overtime” was the only way to make it up. If one took “comp time” then you could bet the bean counters would descend upon you, and you wouldn’t get your “cost of living” nor your “proficiency” raises next time the General Ass, decided to give us one as well as their annual one. Shortly after I retired, they reclassified my old position to another in a much higher grade, some $35,000.00 higher than it had paid (for 20 of the 25 tears prior) and my successor (who died in office) was fortunate enough to be compensated much closer to the “civilian” position. I begrudge no one anything they have been able to get since 1992, but all or nearly all of us who worked for the State prior to then really got screwed on our retirement. And now, the Retirement System has decreed that we may no longer have our “Guaranteed Return” option.

Don’t get me wrong. I thoroughly loved my job until the politicians and the ass-kissing Commissioners gutted it, and would go back to it in a skinny minute if us ol’ folks could be treated fairly and objectively, rather than be required to kiss ass somewhere along the line to protect or not prosecute a “criminal constituent”. I refused to pucker up, and took the only honest alternative. “Jes’ don’t fuck with my pension”,

Whistleblower March 24, 2015 at 9:46 am

The Inspector General should look into these serious red flags. These are not personal attacks or mean spirited attacks. These are legitimate red flags raised about the practices and performance of the state treasurers office. It’s a matter of law, not politics.

There’s significant evidence of fraudulent activity coming from the State Treasurer’s Office. How was the Treasurer’s Office able to pay the Bank of New York Mellon’s custody bill’s last summer and fall? Were funds diverted from other agencies and budgets such as DMV funds? Do Chief of Staff Clarissa Adams’ initials appear on the approval form for the diversion of these funds? How much did this six figure payment cost? Did the legislature give approval in the state budget? Why has so much money been diverted from Unclaimed Property this year? Did Curtis or Clarissa approve this transaction? What is it paying for? Why have fees increased so much in the Local Government Investment Program? What are they paying for? Who are the contract employees making hundreds of dollar every hour they work to implement an IT system? Have there been cost overruns? How much did settling the Amick case cost the taxpayer? Did Curtis break the law? Did he settle it to avoid it coming up the primary?How much does the State still owe the Bank of New York? Why does the State owe money after the lawsuit was settled? Did the settlement funds come in as cash? Or was it a reduction in the amount the State owes Bank of New York?

Whislteblower was fired from the state treasurer’s office for poor performance, poor attendance, failure to report leave, and insubordination.

Everyone at the treasurer’s office is very happy that whistleblower is gone. But now we have to read these silly post.

Had whistleblower worked at the job as hard as posting, whistleblower would still be employed!

You can always tell when the investment commission is not getting its way. They start posting mean shit about Loftis and anyone near him.

The best reason to keep Loftis as the custodian is these post. People this sick shoul never have control of retirement money.

You can always tell when its loftis posting stupid comments because the spelling is always incorrect, he uses foul, vulgar language, and he is always so paranoid that the investment commission has paid people to post on political trash blogs. People as sick as him should never be in charge of an office, not even a bug control office.

Hector the Deflector March 26, 2015 at 5:53 pm

the funniest thing about your comment is that Curtis pays friggin interns from USC to monitor Fits and post all day long. Have seen it with my own eyes. Pathetic.

He literally accuses everyone else of things that he himself does. Its called deflection, and its all he knows. Every single time he opens his mouth and accuses someone of something, you can bet your ass he is doing it himself and trying to deflect his own misconduct.

PIG!

Do u have any belief that one person on the planet, other that your fat cunt friends, would believe your post?

Does this mean that Larry Martin and David Thomas won’t get their $30K this year? I kinda doubt it.
