    I appreciate your comments about why Ms. Topinka opposes substantial pension reforms and a possible state bankruptcy. One suspects that many Republican lawmakers have the same views and that this is a reason why the Republican pension-reform proposals are half-measures at best.
    It’s easy to see why the concept of allowing state bankruptcies has gained little traction — it is opposed by politicians of both parties who want their hefty pensions and benefits, by unions, and by rich bondholders. The only people to benefit would be the taxpayers.
