Meanwhile, another court does its job

Wait, you mean courts don't have the power to make everyone above average?

"In a 5-2 ruling, the state Supreme Court said there wasn't an enforceable contract to ensure full payments to workers, as unions had argued there was. The court overturned a lower-court judge's order that told the Republican governor and the Democrat-controlled Legislature to work out a way to increase pension contributions for the current fiscal year, which ends June 30."

Whoever would have expected this out of New Jersey? I wonder how many states mandate the existence of wealth. Colorado mandates a percentage of the budget go to education, I believe, and Ohio had a legislator introduce similar legislation here (to amend the constitution to so provide). I know there are at least a few states that provide pensions are constitutionally sacrosanct, which is a little bit like mandating that all men look like, oh, who cares, Taylor Lautner. (Just googled him, turns out it's a man, maybe. Dodged a bullet there.)
