Sounds like the brash, truculent one who grabbed the COLAS from retirees has realized that anyone can get the goods, but getting away with it is the hard part.

The hedge fund cronies won't give the two billion back, and they've already 'lost' two hundred million of that to 'save the pension'.

What to do? Put off the day of reckoning until after the democract primary, to avoid voter reprisals.

How very clever. By half.
