Do you envy public safety and military veterans for their pension system? If so, why? How does it affect you? Is it a large tax burden on you? Do you toss and turn at night thinking about someone having a retirement income for some 20+ years of service? Do you envy these veterans because you don't have much saved for retirement? I guess there are always a guy worried that the guy next to them has a larger pension........ Now, this is not to say that there isn't abuse of pension systems, but ultimately the voters decide on the civilian representatives who agree to pension plans.
