Illinois Digs Pension Hole Deeper

    American politics is not symmetric. As a general rule, once a policy/law is enacted and become the status quo, it takes far more energy & effort to significantly change or repeal it than it does to block reform efforts.

    Here, the advantage goes to the defense.

    So, blue states may have to crash & burn economically before meaningful public pension reform is able to be enacted.
