About this Project

John Arnold is an Enron-billionaire who has spent up to $50 million of his own fortune on a nationwide effort to gut retirement security. Enron's demise resulted in billions of dollars of losses to its employees, their families, middle class investors -- in addition to $1.5 billion public pension assets. Arnold funds ballot initiatives, tainted anti-pension research, lobbying efforts, and the campaign coffers of anti-pension politicians. Click on a highlighted state on the map to see how John Arnold has influenced the debate over retirement security in your state.
