Next step: Raise minimum wage
Finally, legislators did something about the debt in Illinois. Too bad the judges weren't included. I guess some of them would have to go on food stamps, and HUD housing. Instead of a new Lexus or better a Ford or Chevy.
As a retired teacher I am glad some adjustments were made. I won't need food stamps, HUD housing and we will continue to buy used cars. Better than what happened in Detroit; the city declared bankruptcy.
What I would like to see next is a raise in the minimum wage for people working at Wal-Mart, McDonald's and other places that pay slave wages. Because of this we all have to pay for their food stamps, their housing and whatever. It is anti-capitalistic for millions and billions of dollars to remain in few hands while others are not really making it even if they work more than a forty hour week.
If decent deserved pay was given we would have less government and fewer taxes, which is what we all want. The greed at the top of these organizations feel they are entitled to their millions. I don't think so. If you frequent these places then don't complain about your taxes or big government. At least to me you are part of the problem.
God bless the United States of America, those who really wish for a United States where true justice exists for everyone and not for just a few who can buy it.
