Oops: Only Morality Stands in the Way of Public Unions and Our Money

Doesn't matter - the union goons and corrupt liberal politicians made agreements that were non-sustainable, and the current taxpayers should not be held up and made to pay for past corrupt agreements. A bankruptcy court should evaluate what should have been fair ...like 1.5% per year x number of years worked x base salary (no OT included)...and everything over that payment should be TAXED at a rate of 95%. This way, we don't change their promised retirement, but we can certainly tax the hell out of all the excess that they shouldn't have been given!!

If you follow the rule in life to follow the money, the money trail increasingly is leading to a union pension, a union wage or a union contract. And it’s putting America’s cities out of business.

As more municipalities begin to eye bankruptcy proceedings as a way out of their financial mess, many believe that one great advantage of bankruptcy proceedings is that it will allow the nullification of fat union wages, pensions and other benefits that taxpayers in the private sector don’t get.

But if the example of Stockton, California serves as a guide, city officials would rather screw...
