Selectively referring to the Trans-Pacific Partnership as "Obama's trade pact" is one of the most disingenuous things that I have read in recent memory. (And I say that as someone who is 100% opposed to any American involvement in the TPP. The "fast track" scam -- and specifically the insanely-secretive nature of the briefings -- SHOULD raise a ton of red flags on both sides of the aisle.) …

Here's an alternative.. Part time firefighters. 24 on and 96 off. No bennies or retirement until they go full time.

From sj-r.com: llinois’ public-employee pensions system is so far in debt that it is “unfixable,” an influential business group said Wednesday.

The Civic Committee of the Commercial Club of Chicago told its members in a memo that even current retirees’ benefits must be cut and other drastic action taken to prevent pension-program bankruptcy, the memo said.

“The pension crisis has grown so severe that it is now unfixable,” former state attorney general Tyrone Fahner, the committee’s president, wrote. “We do not make that statement lightly. It is an honest statement that no one — not our legislators, nor our governor, nor labor leaders — is willing to say publicly.”
