Here’s a Thought

INSTEAD OF CUTTING the pensions of unionized government workers who, however naively, negotiated their contracts in somewhat good faith — or, rather, BEFORE we cut those pensions…

How about we cut the pensions of legislators who 1) permitted the unionization of government workers, against all sense and reason, 2) negotiated in bad faith, knowing full well (or should-have-knowing full well) that the benefits they negotiated would be underfunded, (When did it become sane for any benefit to be funded at less than 100%?), and 3) kicked the can down the road past their terms in office, giving cover to their successors who now by all rights ought to prosecuting their predecessors?

How about that? Cut their pensions, throw ’em in jail. What say you?
