Interestingly, neither the Chicago-based Heartland Institute nor the Illinois Policy Institute were included on the list.

Why isn’t Wirepoints on the list? The truth hurts to these people, but the fact of the matter is everything that is said about the pension shortfalls is backed up with data. And it’s from the publicly available data. To borrow a quote from The Big Short (don’t have book so this is approximate) “Your numbers are wrong, all wrong” “They’re YOUR f*****g numbers!” The data does not come from someone with an agenda, like Madigan, Rauner, NCPERS, or Heartland Institute. They come from financial reports.
