Gina Raimondo, Rhode Islandís Democratic state treasurer, has overhauled the state pension system and isnít making friends with the unions.

The former venture capitalist says, ďA government that doesnít work is in no oneís interestÖI donít really care if youíre a Republican or a Democrat or you want to fight about the size of government. How about a government that just works? Put your tax dollar in and get a return out the other end.Ē

State pensions were a huge problem in Rhode Island because there are more retirees collecting pensions than workers paying into the system. Read more about Ms. Raimondo and her reforms: March 25 Wall Street Journal Weekend Interview
