Pension plan theft

Our legislators, who propose to steal away pension benefits from public employees who have labored years in reliance on promised benefits, are little better than common thieves. If a private employer tried to do this, without the crisis and powers of a bankruptcy court process, it could be criminally liable. But these legislators have rewritten their dictionary: "Pension plan theft" is now simply a "budget adjustment." We should be ashamed to be represented by a government that would do that.
