Re: Never Mind, King Cuomo II Got His Tier 6

Public employees (such as YOURSELF not so long ago) have pension systems providing defined benefits. What these benefits are is determined at hiring. Walker changed that for Wisconsin employees, which effectively means he's stealing their money.

Let's put it another way that you may be able to understand. Hypothetically, there's republicans in Albany again. They don't want to see MTA fares increased.(not that they'd give a FF, they commute by helicopter, but we're talking hypothetical here)The see a lot of $$$ in the pension fund (truth is it's somewhat underfunded, but we're hypothetical here). So Gov Elephantshit says let's follow Walker's footsteps and cut pension benefits to MTA retirees and raid the pension fund to subsidize the poor LIRR riders so they don't have to pay $3/ride. Your letter arrives. What do you do? (don't forget Gov Elephantshit was your guy the previous November)
