Here is the difference between what the president has in the Caymans and what Romney has. ABC News' Luis Martinez and Jason Ryan have the facts: Gov. Romney is referring to President Obama's pension with the state of Illinois during his time served as a State Senator. Under Agreements or Arrangements President Obama's Dec. 2011 Public Financial Disclosure Report for the Office of Government Ethics lists the General Assembly Defined Benefit Pension Plan as the only holding under this category. It says "no further contributions by former employer," funding began in 1997. The pension is managed by the General Assembly Retirement System, State of Illinois. An independent search for this fund turned up this filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission for an investment opportunity by this fund.

Chief sponsor of the bill to fire federal employees who don't pay their taxes, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said there were 102,794 federal employees who were delinquent with their federal taxes 2004 and only a slight drop to 98,291 in 2010 — including some 700 congressional employees. The cost to taxpayers rose from just under $600 million in 2004 to more than $1 billion by 2010, he added. Chaffetz cited an IRS report that among the delinquent federal employees were 1,181 employees at the Treasury Department, 91 workers at the Federal Reserve, and nearly 6.5 percent of the employees at the U.S. Office of Government Ethics — which enforces ethics laws, but yet had the worst compliance rate among federal agencies.
Like all presidential candidates, Romney has to submit a financial disclosure statement to the Office of Government Ethics. He filed his most recent one last month, and the disclosure contains a ...
