Bottom line: history is replete with examples that politicians don't say no, especially when they are enriching themselves at the same public trough. Answer? Abolish all public pensions (in the private sector almost no one receives a pension these days) , everyone on social security and individual retirement accounts -- that's it. But I guess it's too hard for politicians to do the "right thing" particularly when they are "stealing" from the same public trough as the public unions, et al.
