Maibag: MoveOnOrg writes re Petition to prevent Gov from cutting Pensions
I'm writing because I want to make sure that everyone in Evansville sees thisopposing Governor Scott Walker's effort to gut the retirement pensions of Wisconsin public employees.
The petition was started by Kathleen Marsh, a MoveOn member from Townsend, Wisconsin, and already nearly 15,000 Wisconsinites have signed. Will you sign the petition and help reach the goal of 20,000? Just click here:
You can check out the original email about this petition below.
Dear Wisconsin MoveOn member,
Scott Walker wants to radically alter the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS), our public employee pension system in Wisconsin. He plans to turn this 97%-funded, defined benefit system into a high-risk defined contribution system.
If he gets his way, his investment house buddies will cash in big, while Wisconsin retirees will lose the safety and security of one of the best retirement funds in the country.
That's why I created a petition on SignOn.org to Governor Walker, as well as the Wisconsin State House and Senate, which says:
Scott Walker: Keep your hands off the Wisconsin Retirement System!
