Imagine a thug governor who demands that legislators cut earned teacher pensions or he will pull the trigger on the legislators’ billionaire donors. He will stop the multimillion dollar tax giveaways the donors are routinely given.
Imagine a nut politico who states that he is “put on God’s Earth” to cut teacher pensions.
Imagine that he demands that legislators break their oaths to uphold both the state and federal constitutional protections of the teacher pensions.
Imagine that they all lie when they say that pension cuts will save the state from bankruptcy, doom , death and destruction.
Imagine he is the Democratic governor of the bluest of Democratic states, Illinois. The super-majority Senate is Democratic. The super-majority House is Democratic. The ideology is pure ALEC/Tea Party Republican and corporate to the bones.
