Mark, you do realize that Chicago and Illinois public employees hired before 1986 are not entitled to Medicare, because they (and the state) did not contribute to it? It is one thing to cut healthcare for retirees who are Medicare-eligible, like basically everyone in the private sector. But doing so for those ineligible for Medicare is so extreme that I really don’t think that even a bankruptcy judge would allow that – it would basically be a death sentence.
