When unsustainable pensions were negotiated in San Jose, the people didn't understand what that meant. They do now. Paying for those pensions is destroying the ability of the city to fill potholes, keep the public libraries open and maintain public services of all types.
What's needed is a report to calculate all those costs out and report the carnage to the taxpayer along with the personal consequences for them long before these pensions get out of control and destroy the quality of life in that jurisdiction. Right now that doesn't seem to exist. It should.
