Mr. (David) Nace's recent letter to the editor (Aug. 16) reflects current Fox News talking points more than reality.
His analysis blaming the financial problems of municipalities on his version of a "liberal utopian dream" ignores the reality that the generous union contracts have been repeatedly negotiated by both conservative and liberal administrations alike. It has not been the exclusive activity of liberal politicians.
Let me offer an alternative explanation. Politicians of all stripes happily negotiate generous pension benefits because they enjoy those same generous pensions themselves. The government employees' pensions will not be reined in until the politicians' pensions are reined in.
It's an old story: Greedy politicians come in all ideological persuasions.
