Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to adopt more children, but only if pension reform passes


Today Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced that they were committed to working toward a new universal pension system to ensure that all Americans – and particularly their six children – would be able to retire with dignity.

“I like building environmentally-green houses,” says Pitt, “but I think pensions are the sexiest issue in the country and I want to be involved. In fact, once Angie and I know that there is a strong pension system in this country to supplement Social Security, we plan on adopting at least 14 more children.”

Once Pitt made this announcement, hundreds of members of Congress joined in to announce that retirement issues were now their number one priority. Republicans and Democrats alike agreed to work together amicably to develop solutions that embraced shared responsibility – with employees, employers and the government all playing a role in ensuring that people have enough money to make ends meet in retirement. 

And to all this we say, “Happy April Fool’s Day!” We hope this will all become reality sometime soon, but it hasn’t happened — yet.
