All these government union benefits are coming from the tax payer. Paid to the "quitting the work force" employee and payable by their child. How about bankruptcy by all cities/states and etc. then the benefits revert to SS, the same as everyone else. These non workers in government should not get better than the WORKERS who are paying the bills. In fact, since most government employees do about half of what a private sector employee does, how about half of a SS check?
