    When will they learn that it isn't fair to make public workers actually contribute to pensions?

    Rahm Emanuel to state lawmakers on pension costs: 'Day of reckoning has arrived' - chicagotribune.com

    What is that? Emmanuel isn't a Tea Partier, he is actually a Democrat?

    Another Democrat, Zein Obagi, is running for California's 33rd and is campaigning on similar lines with regard to public unions. Perhaps reality is beginning to hit home.

    Sounds good to me!
    I like his ideas. The City can't pay pensions so he offers solutions that don't include raising taxes. But he makes no mention of layoffs or reducing gov't.

    Plus, if the economy doesn't turn around, it'll all be moot.
