The most insulting thing ive seen in my life is govt employees unions!.. like when have they EVER been on strike?.. BTW.. I get $300 less than welfare after working hard for 48 yrs. They are an arrogant separate society that votes our money out of our pockets and in to theirs.

  11. they will get max. $45,000 from fed govt. funding like corporation employees whose pension money isn't there to cover these massive "unpayable" pensions. An avalanche of hurt and disappointment. Thank you State elected officials and find a refrigerator box soon. I'd retire early as I could. Mexico now sounds appealing for retirement. good luck!!! you voted them in.

  12. The Dems are fuckin the USA….
    When the people open their eyes and see the consequences it will be too LATE!

    granny, granpa and everyone
    so they also going to benefit, we dont know of what but they going to get welfare and housing

  30. Rest of America not going to bale these fool out pension to high lower everybody pension.

  31. Now the 'Retirement' model includes cutting Retirements OUTSIDE of the Liberal bastions, major cities, while keeping occupants/retirees incomes from public jobs INSIDE the cities at higher levels- for votes, This 'outside' is expanding TOWARDS the inner cities… eventually all Public retirement funds will have to include cuts…and the 'leaving California' will expand even faster as that 'Middle class' decides, it is better to live frugally elsewhere than lose everything in California, The State will be a massive Detroit, massive below income, with few above income levels for a decent life. The 'California Dreamin' is over.. just like the Pelosi clan did to Baltimore before re-locating to Ca.

  32. Anyone thinking California would have legitimate accounting…I've a unicorn that lays golden eggs. They buy votes by stealing working citizens $$.

  33. And this was 6 years ago LOL
