If employees' pension contributions relative to the cost of such had remained constant, I would agree. But it has not. Public employees are contributing an ever-decreasing percentage to their pensions, while taxpayers are picking up more and more of the tab. That exponentially increasing benefit is stated nowhere in their employment contracts or union agreements.

That post doesn't say "everyone" in it. Don't twist words.

Who does that exclude? It excludes only people NOT getting government handouts.

So you are trying to insert words into my post? You won't get anywhere with that.

It's not my fault you make things up.

No, you are.

You stated: "These people getting government handouts are working!!!!!"

I asked you to prove that everyone getting government handouts was working. You can't do so.

Your problem is that you forgot to limit the parameters of "these people."

Getting government handouts must be the good life. They keep fighting for it.

It's sheer idiocy. First of all, it's a dependency trap. Second, it's a HUGE drain on society. Over $1 trillion dollars is spent per year on over 80 different means-tested public assistance programs. Third, it has generated a destructive pattern in which those who receive public assistance have a birth rate 3 times higher than those who don't, and nearly half of all babies born in the U.S. are born to poor mothers, paid for by Medicaid. It's a financial IMPOSSIBILITY to sustain the exponential growth of the welfare-dependent class. I'm not sure WHY they don't get that.
