The issue at hand is how to dump public employee pension liabilities. They are unaffordable and will be sharply reduced.

No doubt Democrats will be shedding crocodile tears even while they vote to cut those benefits.

And lets be serious here----

Pension promises were made on the theory that the good times would roll on forever. They haven't. Just as benefits have often been negotiated upward, they are now being negotiated downward to match reality. That's a GOOD thing!

Your corporate masters would be so proud of you. It may be completely ignorant babble, totally false, but it's exactly what they want you to say and believe. I can almost see the Koch brothers patting you on your head and praising you for your blind obedience to them. Good boy.
