Government pensions

I find it ironic and more than a bit hypocritical when those who have worked their entire adult life for the federal (big) government, and are now reaping the benefits of a federal pension and health care, now make a call to support policies that limit big government.

Are they willing to give up those retirement benefits as part of the solution to federal spending? If not, now that they have theirs, they shouldn’t cast stones in glass houses.
