CAN'T SEEM TO SPREAD THE BLAME

Today's lead editorial titled "A billion, borrowed" in the Bee doesn't seem to spread the blame for the pension mess this state is in. The Bee seems to put a half-hearted blame in the government leaders for ramping up pension benefits when the governments can't afford it. Let's put the blame on everyone responsible, including the unions that have a vice-grip on the Democratic legislators. When there was a budget surplus several years ago, every interest group came running with their hands out and decried the heartlessness of those who suggested that the surplus should be spent on anything other than funding their particular cause. The Bee just can't bring itself to call the union leadership selfish.
