With the welfare of older Wisconsinites and democracy itself on the ballot, the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare PAC has endorsed the Honorable Janet Protasiewicz for election as a Justice of the State Supreme Court. 

“Free and fair elections are the only way older Wisconsinites have a fighting chance to elect candidates that value the earned economic and health security they receive through Social Security and Medicare.  Without the check on the state legislature and governor that Judge Protasiewicz would provide as a Supreme Court Justice, the deck can be stacked against older voters.” – Max Richtman, President and CEO, National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare

Protasiewicz’s opponent, Judge Daniel Kelly, has characterized Social Security as “involuntary servitude” by taxpayers to benefit those whom he described as “people who have chosen to retire without sufficient assets to support themselves.” 

Unlike Judge Kelly, we are confident that Janet Protasiewicz values the dignity and independence of retirees in Wisconsin who have worked hard, paid their taxes and played by the rules. The choice is clear, and on April 4th Wisconsin voters have a chance to put a friend of seniors to the Wisconsin State Supreme Court.
