Blog User E flagged an interesting Twitter tÃªte Ã tÃªte between Democrat Sen. Ted Lieu and Steve Maviglio, who often speaks for the public employee coalition Californians for Retirement Security.
Lieu tweeted on Friday that lawmakers need to do more about changing pensions or public employees will face even harsher measures via a statewide ballot initiative.
Maviglio responded that the public "(rightly) cares about spiking, abuse, high $" pensions and that unions support laws to tamp that down. But going further would be an "attack on middle class, cops, teachers, firefighters that voters won't support."
