Personally, I really don't want a member of the Tea Klan having any kind of "oversight" with regard to my retirement....

The reason the states want to get rid of defined benefit retirement plans is because they BORROWED from them. The law says the money has to be paid back, and now they don't want to pay it.

Just what we need. Maybe the taxpayers will be represented for a change. It sure would be refreshing and maybe even save a few pensions.

Kasich obviously doesn't care what the voters want.

Kasich is appointing someone whom the voters rejected, just like he did when he appointed Thomas Gunlock to the State Board of Education. Gunlock had been appointed to the same board in 2006 by Gov. Taft, but then lost his re-election bid. In January of this year, Kasich re-appointed him to the Board.

Now, he's appointing Morgan - another voter reject - to the Retirement Council.

Kasich's arrogance and defiance of the will of the people will be the downfall of other Republicans in 2012.

So, the voters didn't want him, because of his Tea Party affiliation, so Kasuck hires him to help oversee the penion funds of unionized workers? And, people think he doesn't have an agenda!

Senator Keith Faber (R), who voted for SB5, made this statement regarding public pensions:

"We want to make sure we have solid, reliable actuarial policy advice," the Celina Republican said. "I think it's more important we do it right, rather than we do it fast."

Isn't SB5 as important? Why didn't the republicans think that it was more important that they do it right, rather than do it fast? Obviously, this is a delay tactic to see what happens with SB5 in November and set up the pension panel with republican slanted cronies.

Remember in November: Farbers term expires in December 2012 and he is elibable for another term. More on those who voted for SB5.

Move already -Texas- is nirvana- just ask the folks who live there-facing 30b dollars in debt, theocratic school boards and scores of abandoned buildings in Houston and Dallas. Please -just move- you can have lunch with Dubya and Laura in Dallas or the Gray mare and George the elder in Houston.

Is John Kasich now trying hard to make amends with all public employees after his debacle with Senate Bill 5?

Other than saying the man is a CPA and a Tea Party favorite, there is no explanation in this article as to his views on changing the public pension system. The Dispatch has simply waved the red flag "Tea Party" in front of the readers.

And they act like the pension funds of public employees ( of which they receive one) totally belong to them. Those funds have been worked for and earned!

OPERS is well managed, can meet its needs for over 30yrs as required by law, made 13% on its investments last year. Former State Rep. Morgan CAN NOT improve on that. Kasich is just taking care of a kroney, probably dosent have any clients. Morgan will bring a "real" independent view to the panel, yeah right, hes a loser. Kasichs mad because he couldnt make 13% on any of his investments.

Speaking of Texas, how is its $27 billion biennium deficit? In a non-union public employee state no less. I wonder whom Rick "The Separatist" Perry blames for that?
