WI U.S Senate candidate survey 

To better inform Wisconsin voters POWRS surveyed all the U.S. Senate candidates on retirement, Social Security and Medicare issues. Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes responded but Sen. Ron Johnson did not respond. Sen. Johnson however has a public record regarding Social Security and Medicare issues. There is significant differences between the two candidates on these issues.

Wisconsin Treasurer candidate information

The Wisconsin Treasurer's office was involved in leading Gov. Evers' retirement task force. POWRS provided input to the taskforce and we hope the next Treasure works to expand retirement options for all Wisconsin residents.

    Protecting the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) 

The WRS is one of the best public employee retirement programs in the nation. It currently serves over 500,000 families in Wisconsin. The WRS is fully funded and a great value for all who live, work and pay taxes in Wisconsin. However, its safety and security is threatened by political meddling.

Promoting Retirement Security for ALL

Many people in Wisconsin do not have access to a high quality retirement program like the WRS. Many will be living in poverty during their "golden" years, but this retirement crisis can be avoided.  See the POWRS proposal to Gov. Evers for action on a Retirement for All program for Wisconsin.
