many of those excessive payout are not deserved.
They were stolen from tax payers in rigged union negotiations in which unions threatened strikes if they did not what the DEWMANDED.
Tax payers were never represented at the bargaining table and those promises should be ruled unfair and not paid.
Let them collect social security like the rest of the world.
