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.
