    I can't believe it, but I am actually sticking up for Gov Quinn - The Worst and Most Corrupt governor in the country!

    The guy raised taxes to put IL in top 5 highest income tax on the middle class, highest sales tax, top five highest property tax, one of the top highest utility and gas taxes and of course top 3 highest corporate taxes in the world. It did squat, because like all the gutless politicians they kicked the can down road for the other guy. Well it finally hit the fan and the can couldn't be kicked anymore.

    What did Quinn do:
    (1) Cut the over-bloated unfunded HIGHWAY ROBBERY pensions that are bankrupting the state! The private sector, who pays for these asshole's jobs, don't get pensions. Yet these fucker believe they should get massive paydays upon retirement. This is the entitlement mentality of Obama and where he wants to take the country. In fact if Quinn had any BALLZ he would have cut the pensions and started the transfer of the collective pensions to individual retirment plans (401k, IRA etc) like cities in CA are starting to do! And the cuts were tiny, no where near what is needed to balance the budget.

    (2) He cut the mandatory annual raise! BOO-FUCKING-HOO!!! How get to place that they believe that the entire work force regardless of how your employer is doing? Liberal collectivist mentality. Here is a thought, maybe get your raise based on merit! That is how I got my last raise.

    (3) He is cutting jobs and enforcing layoffs!!! Yep we all hate when our employer does a RIF or layoff, but, guess what, THAT IS REALITY!!! When your employer can't make budget he either makes cuts in certain places or he goes under. These scumbags won't allow cuts to their highway robbery pension funds, they won't allow employee contributions to their healthcare and literally will NOT allow consolidation of two redundant divisions, workers or departments. Yet they cry foul when people get laid-off. If you are worried about lay-offs then look North of the border to WI. Walker created a budget SURPLUS without closing any schools (in fact he opened more), without laying off one teacher (in fact he hired more), without any layoffs to any State department and without raising taxes!!!


    I have zero sympathy for these people! Their entitlement mentality is what has destroyed the great states of IL and CA!!!

    You are very slow and myopic, but I will also tell you that there have already been bancruptcy declared by several big cities.
    I do like the way Obama gave the public workers in Illinios a nice retirement package.

    It's a political message board smokey!!! It's rare to see a Democrat in IL doing the right thing, but when he doesn't his corrupt base bullies him back into line!

    I missed where it said he took a pay cut and a cut in benefits matching what he cut middle class workers. Could you point it out to me please?

    IOW, although the middle class workers didn't cause it, they have to pay for it.

    And, wtf does this have to do with President Obama?

    Nice red herring you little homo! Again, Gov Quinn is a horrendous governor, so you won't hear me back him there. But saying a symbolic move like the one you said was never taken therefore, the pensions should be reform is utterly ignorant!

    Fact of the matter the reason IL's budget is so out of wack is because the Gangerster in Springfield promised atromical benefits to their big pocket and more important backers, no full well they could never fund them, but they were too spinless to say NO.


    Lay off the pipe smokey. I didn't mention Obama!

    Always nice to see union stooges pissed off at a Dimocrat governor, especially in the state where I spent most of my life before settling in the mecca of west Michigan.
