The waste, fraud, and abuse that his administration has occasioned in its psychotic over-reaction to this is disturbing and embarrassing.

I also take money baths between 11pm and 6am. Mwa hah hah hah, at $50,000 a year, the world is mine!
And some group of assholes named the DoD Business Board want to kill the 20 year pension in the military and replace it with a 401K, effective immediately.
And teachers in NYC (where I live, and what I'd like to do if anybody will hire me ever) contribute nearly 14% to their pensions. They used to contribute 3% back in the 1970s but that wasn't enough given the rate of return.
And all I hear about is the unsustainable nature of pension costs.
But nobody brings up the benefits these dudes (and some dudettes) rake in as they bring the world economy to the brink?
