so the heck with the rest of us!
Lisa Madigan and her ilk are trying to argue that the government's so-called "emergency police powers — the ability to take action to ensure the functions of government — trump the protections of the pension clause".
Wow! POLICE powers to overtake the pension clause of the Illinois Constitution in order to ensure the FUNCTION OF THE GOVERNMENT! How about getting all the people out of government that keep spending (or delaying) the pension payments. How about getting all the people out of government that keep taking from the producers and giving to the parasites. How about we get people in goverment who actually keep their word, are honest, and can uphold the Constitution. Maybe then we can "ensure a functioning government"!
