Apparently it is, according to a front page news story in the Washington Post on a budget provision approved by the Montgomery County Council that would require county employees to pay much more for their health care. The article notes that range of salaries for county employees, beginning with bus drivers who earn $38,000 a year.

It then tells readers:

"But the way they [the increased employee payments for health care] were passed shows what happens when a wealthy, liberal county is forced to confront years of political accommodation and generous spending."
