Illinois finding the wrong solutions

Illinois finding the wrong solutions

Gee whiz. I just read in the Daily Herald that Illinois' credit rating dropped again. We are now ranked 50th out of, according to our president, 57 states. Way to go. An unbalanced budget, free-spending Democrats (neither Illinois or the U.S. government has a spending problem, right?). Will Illinois or the U.S. go down the tubes first?

But look at it this way: Chicago is ranked No. 1 in murders -- keep up the rigid gun laws so honest, law-abiding people cannot defend themselves. Let's increase taxes again and solve everything.
