The bond markets and bond raters like to shake us down too. By rewarding government with ratings based on how well they can screw over taxpayers. Raters even encourage higher taxes over lunch with the governor.

Looking out for taxpayers isn’t the job of the rating agencies. Their job is to tell lenders the likelihood of getting the money they’ve been promised

The Illinois Government has always rolled out the red carpet to encourage members of the “Free State Army” to move here. Then, by throwing them taxpayer paid handouts, they insure themselves of getting their votes come election day. Nothing new here…move along.

Yep, relocating out of state is the only solution. If you’re goofy enough to stay, you’ll be complaining three years from now when things are worse, or worse yet, you won’t be complaining because you’re ignorant or “comfortably numb.”

“Predatory” is the perfect description of Illinois government and the public sector unions

High taxes are a necessary component of a progressive utopia. Because Orange Man Bad!
