Comment: Great piece. “They’re all losing to financial reality.” All the blame game means nothing. Most of the press continue to ignore the numbers, too, just reporting the name calling. We are falling further behind the curve.
Illinoisans don’t like how they’re being disrespected by their politicians – paying ever-higher taxes for ever-fewer services.

Stay and pay more and more for a government he trusts less and less, or leave and save $1 million dollars.
