  •  Tie them to median, not make them the median (1+ / 0-)

    Just as we liberals talk about the ratio of CEO's to workers wages, we need some type of scale to tie a VA doctor (maybe 3 times median) to the community.

    If the average public worker package is higher than the average tax payer paying for that package, we're going to get more and more results like WI, and CA.  We simply can't tell hurting tax payers that they should pay whatever the unions can negotiate for public employees.  Trying to keep the status quo is a formula for defeat of Democrats around the country.
