"Tea party extremists such as yourself, Mr. Bazzo would rip to pieces every fairly negotiated public employee contract ever agreed upon. However, I am sure that would be just fine with you."
"Mr. Bazzo does not care about decades of legally negotiated contracts. Whatever loophole he and others can find to wiggle out of an agreement they will use."
The two above comments more or less summarize the responses I get when I write about the unaffordable public employee contracts. "Fairly negotiated" and "legally negotiated" contracts, one term incorrect, the other correct. Yes, legally negotiated, but only in the perverse system we in New York live under. However, "Fairly negotiated" no way, no how. There never was and never has been anything fair about negotiations with public unions. The problem is there was never anyone representing the employer, read that the taxpayer.
