Protecting Social Security and Medicare

Conservative politicians want to turn Social Security and Medicare into money making schemes for their campaign contributors.They advocate turning your secure, guaranteed Social Security into a risky, market based “individual account”. This would be a bonanza for investment brokers but a disaster for most of us.

Conservatives want to change Medicare into a voucher program. This means instead of having the guaranteed Medicare benefits, you would get a fixed amount to buy private health insurance.

POWRS is mostly concerned with Wisconsin Retirement issues. But Social Security and Medicare are an important part of a secure retirement for everyone. POWRS links to other organizations who work to protect these very successful public programs.
