    A lot of them have really good benefits, and as much cutting the budget as they are doing... I haven't seen any of them offer to take a pay cut or scale back their benefits.

    It seems premature to reach conclusions about the case when none of know exactly the grounds it's based on. ymmv
    I may be wrong.

    It wasnt posted as a conclusion...I posted this because the JUDGE said the law is unconstitutional...but only wanted JUDGES to be exempt

    You are right. I even have to back track on my post a bit. Does the law cover legislators also? If not he might have a point. That he only addressed this as unconstitutional concerning the judges is also the valid arguement. There is no conflict concerning clerks.

    The arguement is that this goes against the seperation between the three ruling bodies. If this covered the legislature also, I'd say he has zero chance of winning. If not, I'd say it will be at least interesting.
