Unclear on the concept

* It really is amazing how little the editorial page pontificators know about pension reform proposals. Yesterday, the Chicago Tribune demanded that the state be given the flexibility to skip pension payments. Today, the Sun-Times doesn’t seem to understand what’s in Senate President John Cullerton’s pension reform bill…
Um, Cullerton’s bill actually includes Biss’ language. His own proposal doesn’t kick in unless and/or until the Biss language is declared unconstitutional.
I went to dinner with some friends last night and we were marveling at how ill-informed some legislators are about this pension reform issue, even after years of debate. They ain’t alone.
