Social Security is on the Ballot

Social Security will be a big issue in the election. The Republicans are determined to turn Social Security into a cash cow for Wall Street and to destroy this extremely valuable and successful public program. Of course their attacks on Social Security are not based on facts or the consequences for all of us Seniors who depend on OUR Social Security income.

Don't be mislead! Here are links to great, short videos with the facts about Social Security

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.
