An obscure court decision against a Rhode Island town's police officers and firefighters could be a warning sign for Social Security

So now this will climb the court ladders until it reaches the SCOTUS.

 

This is not the final word on the subject.

Thanks for pointing that out... you're right, in general the bennies and pensions are based in state government.  However, im also talking about attitudinal changes...and your last point is what im referring to.  Red atates may not want federal assistance as a general philosophy but believe me, when faced with numerous budget difficulties, every state wants federal assistance.  Also, incomes are all relative... right?  Residents of central states may feel resentment that someone in the Northeast gets more in pension or welfare then they do as normal salary or wages.... but in most if those states you can buy a three bedroom ranch for $70,000 whereas that house in most suburban or urban new England cities will be over $250,000.  Its all relative.

We should all probably get back to talking about fishing.
