So, let’s get to the underlying question: Why? Let’s “follow the money.” Former Enron executive and Texas billionaire, John Arnold, contributed $2 million to help us “fix” our pension systems. Why would this former hedge fund manager care about Oklahoma’s pension systems? It’s because someone stands to make an enormous amount of money investing the $22 billion in Oklahoma’s pension funds.
Oklahoma needs to deliver on its promise to those who dedicate their lives to public service. Please stand with me in opposing this plan to harm our pensions. We need to tell our state leaders that Oklahoma is not for sale.
