Biden may find bipartisan support in pension reform efforts

With the election of Vice President Joe Biden to the White House, he will have his hands full with rebuilding public trust in the federal government, the COVID-19 pandemic and more.

Cleveland Building and Construction Trades Council Executive Secretary Dave Wondolowski discussed the dangers of President Trump refusing to concede and pension reform on America’s Work Force Union Podcast.

Restoring faith in the federal government and our elections

Wondolowski remained mum on President Trump’s performance throughout his term. Now that Trump has been defeated, Wondolowski said Trump has been a complete failure. He had the chance to come into D.C. as an outsider, but he squandered it.

President Trump is keeping up his fight to overturn the results of the 2020 election. This worries Wondolowski as Trump has a devoted following. President-elect Biden will have much work to do in terms of bringing the country together.

Pension reform

Wondolowski said the time where Congress continually kicks pension reform down the road needs to end.

As Congress has given themselves a great pension, they have failed the working people who plan to rely on their pension to survive. He said this is an issue with bipartisan support that is not reliant on the runoff races in Georgia for two Senate seats.

He did mention the two Georgia Republican Senatorial candidates, who were involved in what seemed to be insider trading. After receiving a confidential COVID-19 briefing, senators began trading off and buying stocks that could be seen as relatable to the pandemic, all while telling constituents that there was nothing to worry about.
