    OPERS Ohio Retirement needs a Cost Of Living Adjustments due to the fact that gas bill expenses, water bill expenses, computer / telephone  expenses, and electric bill expenses are needed to survive. Every year there are new expenses that are updated on your cost of living expenses.  It is sad and pitiful an American worker retired  can not afford to live with a hot breakfast everyday, buy needed medicine, and pay needed bills to live.   What happen is the fact the cost of food is severe and extreme in all things.   Who is getting  all this severe and extreme money ?  Who are  the Fat Cat Wizard  Bankers ?   Who are  in control of the economy of retirement   money ?   Where is all of this heading?    Are we going to  eat Dogs and Cats and turn Petco into a Grocery Store that sell Dogs  and Cats are a Dinner Menu ?
