    Sigh. If only there were some way to put more soda into the glass. But it would inconvenience the plutocrats, and we can’t have that. Better to break our promises to the working class.

    Why can’t these lazy ingrates stop expected to be given what they were promised? We want the rich to pay less taxes rather than pay your earned pensions , so you old people just SHUT UP!

    when i signed on with the u.s. govt as an engineer, the pay was about 20% below private engineering jobs. the reason they gave us a pension promise and some good paid leave is because nobody would take the jobs in those days. some govt jobs pay more than private sector, but engineer job with appropriate experience pays less than a private sector similar job. that goes for new hires and experienced. and if i was not bright enough to make good investments, i would not have been able to retire on this crap pension.

    I’m sorry but they need to fund the pensions like companies have to If you do not put money aside to do this then cut cost till you have a enough. That does not mean raise taxes remember the more you give them the more they will spend. Oh and forget taxing the rich just go out and Buy stuff made in the U.S.A. that would help the most

    Failure to pay in when obligtions were incurred, leaves a big bill to pay later, but that is just bad money management!

    This benefit was part of the deal they were hired under, worked under. My 89 year old mother in law gets a state pension. She does not look like a fat cat to me!

    When municipalities renege on signed contracts, who will be willing to trust them in the future? “A liar is not to be believed even when he tells the truth.” This is the consequence for changing the rules in the middle of the game. What happens when private companies decide they don’t want to trust the municipalities that hire them?

    “Blame the Republicans.”

    I know you’re not interested in real facts, but Clinton was behind repealing the Glass – Segal act as well as clearing the way for China to enter the WTO, which greatly expanded their market access. Many feel the repeal of Glass – Steagall was a precipitous event that lead to the banking crises in 2007.

    They want the old to shut up an DIE. No need for gulags and death camps, this works better and most importantly cheaper.

    The LOVE of money is corrupting along with power.

    -
    Good points. I keep telling Omnius & HOWGOITZ and the other partisans that playing that game blinds them both to the realities. The Plutocrats rule both and they are hard line right wing. D’s and R’s are on the same side in this case. Not ours.

    I was working in state gov until the private sector offered 20% more. I wondered how the state could promise such great pensions. Most people stay at lower wages to get the pension. I guess some govts do not fund their pensions, just raise taxes- both R & D are at fault for this situation.
