    So you seem to be saying .....put the pension contribution into
    the paycheck so the teacher can then contribute it back into the
    pension. Then legal problem is fixed...contribution made and
    law upheld....only problem is the money isn't there right this
    moment (or moment when this was first done). This agreement
    most likely allowed the money to be put off and used for
    whatever else. Money is still owed though....deferred
    compensation once again.

    btw....also would be great if all of us NOT in social security
    were in it. That saved the states billions. Prehaps they should
    also cough up that money...certainly would make me more secure
    feelin
