State pensions inherently against constitution

Success - Article sent! close

State constitution: the fundamental principles by which a state is governed. I question the legality of the part of the Illinois Constitution regarding the pension system. It is my belief that the constitution is for everyone equally. Then how is it that the state can tax 100 percent of the people and give to about 18 percent of the people? Therefore, I dispute the legality of the state constitution. The laws of the state should treat everyone equally.
