Outrageous Bailout Proposal For Teachers

Education Minnesota and the Democrats are planning another kick in the stomach to ordinary taxpayers.

It seems their pension plan is down -- and they want tapayers to bring it back up to "fully funded" level. To the tune of millions upon millions of dollars of course.

Well, I got news. Lots of pension plans and 401ks and 403bs are down. There's no bailout for those people. Yet Education Minnesota expects those same people to bail the teachers out because they are special. How about this: live with less the way working folks must do.

Some teachers will retire early and receive the princely sum of $4,000 a month or more from their pensions. Sorry, but any sympathy for you guys just drained away.

Has anyone noticed how for-profit companies have phased out their pensions, yet public employees keep rolling merrily along on the strength of the hard-working people who have no pension. How long can this go on unchecked?
