The Boston Globe calls for politicians to opt out of the public pension system, noting that until they do, they have a literally vested interest in keeping the status quo: "Taxpayers’ share this year is about $1.4 billion, an amount [candidate for State Treasurer Karyn] Polito contends is unsustainable. She believes the state should move toward a 401(k)-like retirement system for future workers, similar to the system used by most private companies. Elected officials should lead the way by moving themselves in such an alternative system."
