Fleg post about something you might have a clue about. Wisconsin's public employee pension is not one of them. Disclaimor, I am presently recieving a state pension. It is not a cadillac income, but satisfactory. For the last 4 yrs I have had it decreased based on its investment income and will get another cut this year. WI's retirement program is 99% funded and is rated the 3rd best and safest in the US. Deal with facts not with what is happening in other states.

By the way how do you defend your governor when we have lost private sector jobs for the last 6 months while both Illinois and Minnesota have gained private sector jobs along with the rest of the US?
