Rep. Rich Morthland says he is not inclined to support the current version of pension reform [SB512] because the employees were not consulted:
Hey Rich, when will the taxpayers get a seat at the table? You politicians took money once from us to pay for these pensions, then spent it on something else. Now you want to hold us up again to pay for the same thing twice. Where’s the justice in that? Where’s our representation? As it stands now, you politicians and Big Labor are trying to figure out how much you can confiscate from us to compensate for your reckless and possibly illegal actions.
Since we’re paying the damned bills, we demand representation at the bargaining table because you politicians sure aren’t doing the job for us.
