There is a simple solution. Legions of government workers are retiring with pensions that leave the rest of us flummoxed. How did this happen? How can it possibly be right that our towns and states cannot keep its parks, roads and schools up to date while two bit government workers walk away with all the loot enjoying generous, early, cola boosted retiriements? Some sort of clawback on these benefits is essential. The rulers of Bell in CA may have been a little bit too greedy but not by much compared to the rest. Shall we prosecute them all, or find a way to make it right?
My suggestion is an excise tax that evens the playing field. The infinite cleverness of finely crafted and targeted taxation developed by the Democrats should be used against the ruling class.
Saying a lil truth once in a while to defend your side doesn’t make you clever or any less transparent.
These people aren’t the ruling class,they are vermin who think they are really clever and above it all.
Taxing a bunch of overblown pensions is just going to make them more acceptable hence bankrupting the States that support them faster.
Your problem like anyone else who views these pensions as some kind of inoffensive give-away to what I assume are your buddies.Is you have no idea of what they cost in the long term in terms of financing.
