The main thing I think is the Unions which should be outlawed will object and Obama will cave. He owes the 08 election to Unions ACORN and others.
I agree to an extent. I think most public sector positions regardless of where they are. Should be paid the same amount. There needs to be a pay maximum and pension that is low.

For an example I believe that a teacher-except for universities-should be paid less than 90000 a year. That is good money. There is no need for them to earn any more. And for retirement they should not earn more than 25000. That would go a long way on fixing property taxes.
