Fox News host Neil Cavuto says that it's time for state and local governments to begin cutting union pensions because people don't need to have expensive Chateaubriand steaks "every night."
After voters in San Jose on Tuesday approved steep cuts to public worker pensions, police officers and firefighters in the city filed multiple lawsuits to block the reforms.
On Thursday, Cavuto told Democrats for Progress columnist Steven Leser that "you've got to target what right now is the biggest and most ballooning part of public costs across the country and that tends to be pensions, benefits."
"I think it's wrong to scapegoat the unions over this," Leser noted. "There's all kinds of other things that we could be looking at to raise money without attacking middle class workers, people who risk their lives for us -- you know, police officers, firefighters."
