Retired Federal Employees looking for a handout

This guy wants federal pensions to be untaxed in Indiana.

For better or worse, all pensions are taxed in Indiana, be they public or private.  This guy mentions that Socialist Insecurity is untaxed, but that's not the same as a private sector pension.  In fact, federal employees are already ahead of the game in that many didn't pay into Social Security at all.  I know mailmen didn't.

There are states that don't tax pensions, but that doesn't seem fair.  Why should retirees be exempt from the burdens of paying for government?
