    I’m confused about the Lexington pension fund issue, as they are their own pension plan – they aren’t part of the state pension fund. Their problem is that, for example, if you are a police officer with a minor medical disablity, MINOR, they disable you out completely and you stop working, and draw a full medical pension. It is bankrupting their system.
