We’ve had Walker for eight years. Let’s have a Halloween party action to show how he has affected our state and our communities.

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 17th, NOON
Corner of Knapp and Water Street

Come in a costume that shows one aspect of his leadership. Be creative or copy someone else – we want everyone to know what he has done since 2010. Be one of his friends – the red-haired spy, a Koch brother, Foxconn Corporation, Jim Crow, the WMC, Kelly the convict, or Donald Trump!

Dress up, or come as you are!
We will gather at 11:45 and celebrate at Noon.
Don’t miss the best party of the election season!

Why the national elections matter.

Recently Representative Nancy Pelosi visited Milwaukee and we were energized by her plea for a unified voice this fall as we consider our choices for who will represent us in Washington.
 
There are many issues we all care about and work to influence every day - but there are three health care issues that could affect the lives of every person in this country, especially seniors, that we think you must know.

The escalating unchecked rise in the cost of prescription drugs.
This Congress has done nothing to help citizens who are devastated by the unnecessary and profit motivated drug prices inflicted on us by the pharmaceutical industries. If anything, the companies have gotten bolder in their greed and face no consequences for their actions. We must elect a Congress who will use the economic and moral leverage of the Federal Government to negotiate lower drug prices for all of us.
The threats to destroy Medicare in the name of entitlement reform.

Currently, due to the provisions of the Affordable Care Act,
insurance companies must cover pre-existing conditions.

The 2018 Mid-Term Congressional Elections are very Important.
Vote like your life depends on it.
It does!


Good News at the County Board Meeting October 1st!!

The League of Progressive Seniors congratulates Milwaukee County Board Chairman Theo Lipscomb on the successful “Fair Share” resolution introduced at the October 1st meeting.

He and County Executive Abele will create a task force and coalitions to convince state government that the money that  we as taxpayers send to Madison must be returned in a fair manner to local governments in order that citizens can be served.

Increasing  the Shared Revenue returned to the County is the number one issue of the League of Progressive Seniors.

We are happy to report that Chairman Lipscomb recognized us in public this morning for bringing him this idea.

We are available for presentations on this subject to any interested groups.
