Consider federal employee-prosecution-escape-artists like the former IRS chief Lois Lerner who invoked her Fifth Amendment protections during Congressional testimony. Wouldn't it be nice to see her pension information
Citizens deserve to know Ms. Lerner's annual pension.
The American people deserve to see the granular details of who's receiving what, when and after how long. It's the only fair way to debate taxpayer-guaranteed job benefits.
But, federal law characterizes the federal pension payouts to retired public employees as "private information."

It's time open the books on federal pensions. Consider the following from 1993:
National Taxpayers United filed a request for former U.S. Senator Wyche Fowler's retirement benefits. The Office of Personnel Management's rejection stated:
"It is our policy not to provide pension rates for individual Members of Congress because to do so would violate their privacy without shedding light on how the Government conducts its business."
Public sunshine on a retirement payout to a former U.S. Senator is a violation of his privacy. What about our right to know how government is spending our money?
