Looking for thoughts on future of ETF (WI retirement system)

Likely of interest only to State employees!

As one of thousands of state employees wondering what changes the Republicans will make to the etf and our benefits, I would like to know what others think. I'm vested in the system and am concerned that we will be hit with changes that limit options such as taking benefits early, etc.

I know the report from last summer advised not making changes to the etf, but I have no doubt that making changes to the etf is near the top of the Republicans' to do list. There is just too much money sitting there for them not to loot it...

When I see what school districts have done to teachers' retirement benefits, I am concerned that we will get hit with the same surprises with the etf, and soon. I feel like getting out in the next few months and being done with it.

Any thoughts on what they might do to the system? I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering...

1. Scooter, Fitzgerald, Vos and the other thieves are plotting how to steal it as we speak ....

... It's a top-rated investment, serving State employees very well.

The best thing we could do is make it available as an investment option for all State residents. Sadly, I fully expect Wanker and gang to loot it, kill it or otherwise destroy it.

2. Whatever they do, there will be lawsuits.

Wanker has to run in two years. Does he want more lawsuits?
