Public supports Florida governor's pension rollback plan

This week, newly elected Florida Gov. Rick Scott proposed an overhaul of the state's public employees' pension system by requiring them to contribute to their retirement accounts and by not offering the pension plan to new workers.

As expected, the public employees' unions are outraged.

But the public?
By a percentage-point margin of 64-28, voters say state workers should contribute to their pensions, just like private-sector workers.
