    Spengler wrote that democracy is the completed equating of money with political power. Far from being an antinomy, the dominance by money of democracies has proved to be a historically necessary feature.

    Union presidents are not his only constituency. If it’s cheap to placate them he will do so, if it causes noticeable pain for other supporters he probably won’t. Since this seems designed to push the pain for other constituents down the road he will probably get away with it.

    Sure he will, in a heartbeat.

    When pensions get cut, my sympathy for the pensioners will be tempered by the thought that they voted for such union leaders.
