There is a good reason why the government would fund a union pension plan.

Forcing the GM Bond holders to lose everything while shoveling tax money at the Unions somehow seems unfair.

There is good reason why a DEMOCRAT would use taxpayer money to fund a faltering union pension plan. It's because unions (and most of their members) are traditionally big donors to the Democratic Party.

This is just the beginning. 40 Mid Size Cities in Calif are already in Munipical Bankruptcy due to impossible to Fund, Unfunded Public Sector Pensions.

Los Angeles knows they face the same within three years and the Unions are STILL demanding more and more and more.The City Hall Dem Dictatorship keep giving them whateveer they want in return for campaign support without concern for the fiscal nightmare it creates.
