Pension Payments to Retirees Dropping 9.6 Percent
Posted Friday, March 1, 2013 --- 2:54 p.m.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Retired public employees in Wisconsin will see their monthly pension payments decrease by 9.6 percent starting in May.
The Department of Employee Trust Funds announced the cut on Friday. It had warned in December that the cut could be as high as 13 percent.
Do-it-yourself-ers in Wisconsin take another step toward freedom from the prying eyes, gossip and obstructions of pensioned NIMBYs.
How long before this is blamed on Walker? Oops, maybe I’m wrong. Based on the comments on the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, it’s Bush’s fault.
They will blame Walker, anyway, especially all those who rushed to retire “before Walker cuts my pension” (sic).
The libs will certainly try.
