Congratulations on your first blog post! I'm just getting caught up on reading through all of them.

You make a really important point that everyone ought to consider: excess money collected from taxes is not really "mad money." It's money that has been taken from the taxpayers.

Taxpayers have every reason to expect that their elected officials will see to it that Pension obligations are met--and then give any excess back to those who paid it--not look for new ways to stash it away to spend on who-knows-what....And asking taxpayers outside of Omaha to foot the bill for the pensions would only add to the perception that rural Nebraska just keeps subsidizing "big city schools" vis a vis the current property tax debate.
