In an April 9, 2012 op-ed piece in USA Today, Offer Retirement Security for all Workers, NYC Comptroller John C. Liu makes the case for Teresa Ghilarducci's opening the window proposal. The proposal takes advantage of existing state pension infrastructure to invest funds set aside by private-sector workers without access to pensions through their employers. "If we don't help people save for retirement during their working years, we will pay for it later in an increased strain on social services. We are not, nor do we want to be, a country that lets our retirees go hungry and homeless."
