Our state is on the verge of bankruptcy. Poverty in the Chicago suburbs has increased as much as 100 percent. People are losing their houses and are in financial trouble. The pensions of many Illinoisans are in jeopardy.
Mr. Bill Brady's solution to bringing Illinois out of bankruptcy and solving our legal responsibility to the pension funds is "no new taxes." His solution to the financial problems of the people of Illinois is "cut spending 10 percent across the board."
I cannot understand how keeping Illinois bankrupt, not taking responsibility for our pension fund obligations and penalizing the people who have been hurt by this depression are reasons to vote for Mr. Brady.
Pat Quinn has said that these problems are our responsibility. That, of course, is a very unpopular point of view to those who don't care. I, for one, do care. I would like for us to solve these problems by taking responsibility. Mr. Quinn seems to be the only one with the moral fortitude to try.
