The public sector pension debacle on the horizon will be insurmountable. It was caused by corrupt politicians pandering for votes from corrupt public sector unions. The unions either knew, or should have known, that the promises could never be kept. The taxpayers will not be able to bail these pension plans out even if they wanted to. The costs are too high. Illinois unfunded pension at 300% of the state's revenue? Fuggedaboutit.

Who do you work for? The Koch brothers? a hedge fund manager? the Heritage Foundation? ALEC? Rupert Murdock? the NSA?
