Ashamed to say we live in Illinois

In the June 22 business section is an article that should have been on the front page. The situation in this state is beyond belief and we are planning to leave as soon as we can. My husband has lived here 73 years and I have lived here 65. We are leaving family behind because we cannot afford or tolerate the situation any more.

The stock market crash took half of our retirement investment and now the state is trying to gobble up what we have left in high gas prices, increased taxes and wasted spending in Springfield. It's a very sad state of affairs to live in the worst state in the nation. We are ashamed to say we live in Illinois.
