What kind of conservative thinks that contracts are free to be breached by one party when it doesn't like the contract anymore? Ah, well, one party is a union, and contracts with unions aren't really contracts, is that the argument? A contract is a contract is a contract.

Thank you.

Screw 2012 so-called conservatives~~~they conserve nothing, and destroy/consume only.

But there is a Nazi in every room, on every school board, who would NOT care less if all teachers died after 10 years of service, so they didn't have to continue to pay them after they are worn out.
Most people would be thankful if they only had to pay three percent of their salary toward retirement. That would be considered a gift in the private sector. But to Florida’s government employees, it’s a crime and an insult.

That’s why the unions have filed a lawsuit, forcing the Florida Department of Management Services to rack up a whopping $499,288 in legal fees (thus far) to defend a new law requiring government employees to pay a paltry three percent towards their state pensions.

Unsurprisingly, the unions won the first round in court. There is always a politically-friendly...
