Picking two points and hammering them home

The Kentucky Club for Growth's Andy Hightower has a great way of putting things:
"It's the most irresponsible thing our leadership regularly practices, and it's apparently killing people."
He's talking about, of course, the $30 billion public employee benefits disaster in Frankfort. There are really two points that matter in this discussion: that benefits are too high for government employees and that even that would be okay if we had properly funded them for the last few decades.

Andy jumps all over both of them right here.
