"But we'll get it done," he told reporters after an event in Oakland Monday. "Just like I did to taxes, I'll get to pension reform.  One way or the other, we will reform the pensions in California.  You can count on that."

Last week, the governor told legislative Democrats their pension proposal wasn't acceptable and asked them to keep working during this month's summer recess. On Monday, asked what's wrong with their plan, Brown said it would save billions of dollars less than his own 12-point proposal from last fall.
 
"We've costed it out," the governor said. "It was a very complicated plan.  And we've pretty well dug into it and find out it just doesn't do the job at all."
 
Democrats have said their goal is to reach savings comparable to the governor's.  They say they're in agreement with Brown on many of his proposals but call some of his ideas unworkable or too harsh on public employees.
