Wisconsin isn’t the only state where citizens voted for fiscal sanity Tuesday. Voters in San Jose and San Diego embraced pension cuts for public union workers.

More from The Washington Post:

Voters in two major California cities overwhelmingly approved cuts to retirement benefits for city workers in what supporters said was a mandate that may lead to similar ballot initiatives in other states and cities that are struggling with mounting pension obligations.

Supporters had a simple message to voters in San Diego and San Jose: Pensions for city workers are unaffordable and more generous than many private companies offer, forcing libraries to slash hours and potholes to go unfilled.
