Let me try to make it easier to understand: Illinois is BROKE. They are over 6 months behind in payments, over $10 BILLION just in current unpaid bills. $100 BILLION behind in Pensions. This all after their 67% tax increase.
I warned for the last 10 years stop spending and promising what you don't have. Facts don't cease to exist just because they are ignored....
It is hard to argue with the numbers. Both parties need to join together to at least mitigate the disaster that is our state financial condition. The day of reckoning will come. If a 67% tax increase hasn't solved the problem it becomes obvious cuts are needed, not even higher taxes.
My opinion only. Ken Dillenburg
