Gov. Branstad should have to forego pension

The Gazette Opinion Staff

Gov. Terry Branstad wants state employees to pay part of their own health insurance. Why do taxpayers have to pay Branstad more than $50,000 a year for a pension when he was governor for 16 years before he ran again? How many state employees get that benefit?

He should have to forego that pension for now. I would say that if he was a Democrat.
