If the economy is doing so well........

Quote:
Barack Obama's home state of Illinois is near the point of fiscal disintegration. "The state is in utter crisis," said Representative Suzie Bassi. "We are next to bankruptcy. We have a $13bn hole in a $28bn budget."

The state has been paying bills with unfunded vouchers since October. A fifth of buses have stopped. Libraries, owed $400m (£263m), are closing one day a week. Schools are owed $725m. Unable to pay teachers, they are preparing mass lay-offs. "It's a catastrophe", said the Schools Superintedent.

States will have to learn that money isn't endless. Hopefully the residents will be stung enough to pay attention the next time they are in the voting booth. California is about to issue IOUs again LOL....

Both Illinois and Kommiefornia could vaporize off the map and I wouldn't shed a tear. I'm almost inclined to add Massachusetts to that as well.

The REAL problem in Illinois is corruption. Also, Chicago sucks down much of the states revenue. The southern counties don't get shit compared to Chicago.

BTW, politically speaking, Illinois can be split in two. Chicago is the liberal stronghold but pretty much the rest of the state is conservative.

So...where's the rest of the press on this? I can't believe that Fox doesn't even post this.

Not only would I not shed a tear, but I would laugh while pissing on their graves.

Or anyone else.


And yeah, to add to the thread title. If the economy is doing so well, why the hell is my population 50,000 town losing more and more stores every day? About half our car lots are gone, and about once a week I notice a new business has closed. Hollywood video was the most recent. If I am not mistaken that is part of a major chain, perhaps not as big as blockbuster though. There are still all kinds of places like that, doing that, all around my town, as time goes by. So I too am wondering why, since the economy is doing so well.
