Cushy???? Geez, can someone please talk about what is going to happen to the people who are depending on their pensions to see them through old age?
And following that show with a ridiculous segue into how much makes us happy-$163,000 btw...Is that cushy enough for you, Martin? Anyone you know getting a cushy pension like that, Martin? Me, I'm depending on social security, Martin, if it survives...Want to have THAT conversation, Martin?

The public unions have (just through September!) spent 4 million dollars (WSJ today) this year on attack ads on Christie to protect their cushy pension plans. My goodness, imagine if they had spent this on helping some failing schools in New Jersey.

Remember, this is all about the children!! (LOL)
