I think the key word in your argument is "unfunded" . . . and how are they unfunded? . . . because the government workers didn't pay their mandated share? -- or because the government (at whatever level) didn't pay its share, but simply put an IOU in the pension fund? Did your Federal worker do his part -- and his wife hers? If so, aren't they entitled to the benefits they were promised as part of their employment? Did your cop friend do his job for his 20 years? . . . if he had the danger during his working years, why shouldn't he reap the rewards at retirement? How about if we jail the politicians who fail to properly manage/fund these pensions (just like everyone calls-for with eeevil Wall Streeters) instead of focusing on the worker
