"Wisconsin, like other states, discriminates in favor of public employees by creating a special unique set of rules for investment trusts, for which everyone else is excluded.

One feature is the direct or indirect immunity from the private risk of investment loss for the member’s accounts. An argument could be made — should be made — that this violates equal protection."
