Agar, I said Chicago school teachers and you are admitting we are bankrupt. The reason is important, but the solution is most important. Can't bleed a turnip, so if you care to get any of your pension there will have to be compromise, the tax payers already have with a 67% increase in state income tax. See you on the next thread. We're getting a little too back room.

Phaedrus, you are Phixated. "can't bleed a turnip" doesn't hold water when you have billions floating across the borders into other countries under the guise of "free" trade. It ain't free. It never was. We the people have been picking up the tab for a very long time.

Again, I point to Mr. Kirk, Mr. Durbin, Mr. Foster, Mr. Hultgren. If we can pour billions to our "allies" for "aid" money, we need some "aid" here ourselves in Illinois. Time to bring some of that money here where it is needed the most. And we're in trouble in the first place because downstate tapped some piggy banks that didn't belong to them, and now they claim they owe nothing in return. I had some wise words passed to me when I was growing up - There Aint No Such Thing As A Free Lunch. Those pensions were EARNED, not "entitled", so no snobby finger lifting tea drinkers in this room. Just hard working folk. Recommend

And Turnips, when cut up, add very nicely to some soup. A little bit of spices, and viola, dinner.
