A bribe is considered an objectionable way of doing business. Yet this is the tactic the leaders of the Illinois Legislature are using to pass through pension reform in the courts.

What is the bribe? The bribe is the exclusion of the judiciary from pension reduction. Judges have the highest pension of all state employees (I have read their pensions average around $100,000). Yet they have been excluded from pension reform.

It doesn’t take a genius to see the tactic in this judiciary exclusion. What’s next?
