    If you live in IL, then you are getting bombarded with this story. The CEO of arguably the most important Corporation in Illinois basically told Gov Douche Bag that IL better change it's business unfriendly climate (the highest corporate tax in the world) or they are shipping out!!!

    Of course Gov Douche Bag responses the typical arrogant way of dismissing the warning and then going to the media calling the CEO of Caterpillar (who no doubt has a large ego) a liar! Why the move takes place Quinn, no matter what you do at that point, they aren't coming back!

    On the evening news yesterday, they had a very large list of C-Corps that already made the jump to other states. IN is the biggest receiptant the IL C-Corp exodus. Governor Daniels must send Governor Quinn a thank you letter for making his job easier! I know WS is getting a good share also, no doubt businesses feel more comfortable with Walker at the helm than the Quinn!

    AWESOME!!!

    The treck to make Ill look like Detroit is well on it's way!!

    For anyone that follows what goes on in Ill, this is not that shocking. For anyone that doesn't know how important Catapillar is. Just imagine the biggest factory or source of jobs in your STATE, moving out.

    *sigh*

    At this rate it's gonna be coal miners and farmers.

    Why would they stay in Illinois? The Socialist/Progressive Democrats destroyed that State a long time ago. Have you seen Chicago lately? It's a miserable Third World War Zone at this point. Caterpillar will have to do the right thing and leave. Illinois has become Democrat-Hell. Time to get out.

    Can't blame any business in ILL for moving. Taxes must be killing all business in that State. To bad for the citizens because if the buisiness leaves then so will jobs.

    Guess ILL could learn a little something about being buinsess friendly.

    Cats a great company. Lets see where they go.

    They will be welcomed with open arms in many other States. This is the correct decision.

    With our money.

    but that's different. The EVUL catapillar wants to operate at a profit.






    just like GM did, but :eusa_shhh:

    Ironically this is the same Plant Hopey Changey gleefully boasted about only a year ago. Illinois shouldn't have listened to their Socialist/Progressive Wingers. They'll have to pay a price now.
