Do you blame the Tea Party participants, or President Obama himself? Where do you belong? Where do you normally stand? What do you think?

Bankruptcy means you cannot cover your obligations. Pension benefits are an obligation. Of course they are a contributor to the condition. Wages, building maintenance, vehicle maintenance, contractor contracts are all contributors.

One can consider the root cause to be the untenable business model imposed by Congress.

That's all true and after losing 20 Billion last year, with the administration giving the PO the thumbs down for a rate hike, they cannot afford any of this and had to make the bankruptcy announcements. What do you think?
