There seems to be a fiscal crises similar to the one that hit New York City in the 70's starting in California. It will be interesting to see how this is resolved (who pays / gets screwed). At some point it will be apparent that even a debt free house has a perpetual government lien on it, and in the case of San Diego a lien that is getting larger. In NYC the 70's were a very bad time, and housing prices declined.

"Pension board members estimate that the average city employee is eligible for a check of $306,104 upon retirement and a lifetime pension of $50,000 a year. The average pension has doubled in 10 years."

The value of a 50k/yr annuity for a couple born 6/15/1950 is $875k. This means that after 30yrs of service SD CA employees get 1.181M dollars. Is this really possible?
