It's boring thanks to Governor Walker and the Republican Wisconsin legislature.

You want the excitement of retirement? Try Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, new Mexico, Rhode Island.

You're kidding, right?

BTW -have you yet acknowledged that the WRS is not limited to unionized workers? That would be the intellectually honest thing to do, you know.

Nope. Educate me on why all this hate towards a duly elected person that has not broken any laws or even done anything close to an impeachable/recallable offense.

I thought I did as I remember addressing it twice, but if not, the retirement does also include non unionists. That's probably why it's one of the few functional government ones, lol. Sorry, couldn't help it. I don't like the idea of a "protected" worker as they are protected from a lot of real world things.

So what did the Gov do again?

And if anyone knows intellectual honesty, it's Stu Levitan.
