PLANSPONSOR.com - San Francisco Labor Unions Sue to Stop Pension Ballot Measure Unions for city workers are attempting to block pension reforms that would require workers to pay more into their pensions and for dependent medical care by having the courts declare a referendum on the ballot unconstitutional. A sign of things to come. The public cannot afford the pensions and health care benefits the unions have created and if they want to keep them, the union members are going to have to pick up the tab...and they don't want to. Although I don't begrudge anyone a pension or medical care, it is patently unfair to demand that citizens of another state pay for worker's pensions and health care in California and that is exactly what the federal government is going to do if cities like San Francisco can't make budget. In fact, that was a part of the stimulus packages that were passed. The pyramid scheme that the unions negotiated simply aren't sustainable and health care costs will continue to rise until after the "baby boomers" are gone simply because of the demands on the system, (assuming we don't inject 20-40 million now illegal residents into the system). This is where your tax dollars are going to go if the current administration has its way. Unions are going to reap billions to support pension plans...you (and your children and grandchildren) will be paying for someone else's retirement and health care even if you can't afford it for yourself.
