Why do other states NOT have pension dilemma? Is it the lack of contribution by state in the past or is it a total # of state pension eligible individuals (He may answer)

The state took money that should have gone to pension funds and used it for other things, right?

Has this “balanced budget” clause ever been brought up in court? This just seems like a sham…
Ryan Lawler

I hate to be negative…but it’s like tearing up the Constitution and saying it doesn’t really matter.

On a phone call yesterday with Rep Barbara Hernandez and she says word is that need to make 32% budget cuts. Senator Lighford on the same call says anticipate anywhere from 10 to 22% budget cuts

Ballotpedia has a fact check on the Balanced Budget Amendment with more details.

I wonder what the name does to polling…Do people actually know what the Fair Tax is? It sounds nice. It’s like Obamacare vs. the Affordable Care Act. Polling is low for Obamacare, but higher for ACA.

Isn't it more correct to say that only a *majority* of Republicans oppose, not that "only Republicans oppose"?
