From the Blogfather, Instapundit, comes this news of those vicious Tea Party thugs’ mind control. It even extends all the way to California. Gnarly.
California voters want government employees to give up some retirement benefits to help ease the state’s financial problems, favoring a cap on pensions and a later age for collecting them, according to a new poll.
Voter support for rolling back benefits available to few outside the public sector comes as Gov. Jerry Brown and Republicans in the Legislature haggle over changes to the pension system as part of state budget negotiations. Such benefits have been a flashpoint of national debate this year, and the poll shows that Californians are among those who perceive public retirement plans to be too costly.
If even the left coasters are seeing the deficit-reduction light, maybe there’s hope for America yet.
