Spending more money...?  Where does Springfield find even an extra nickel?

$50 million for a basketball arena for Depaul University.

Millions for "high speed rail" to northwestern Illinois that no one will ride, plus additional millions more to keep Amtrak afloat....

$750,000 for three copper doors in Springfield...

When does the madness end Governor?

I regret that I just read about Mr. Fuddles visit at this time.  Many state, and university retirees would have liked to have known about this last week.  Mr. Fuddles does not make his "public visits" known until the last minute.  I still have tomatoes on the vine along with plenty of rotten apples.

Quinn is a Thief.  He needs to be confronted by those who he proudly wants to "solve" the state's financial problems by stealing from them.   The public employees paid into their pensions with every paycheck.  The State of Illinois, the employer, did not.  Now, the solution is to steal the earned pensions of the retirees.   None of the "bipartisan" committee on "pension reform"  plans deals with the retirees.  All of the plans are based on current, and future employees paying more into their pension funds.  Oh, there is the "promise" that the employer, the State of Illinois, will start paying the employer's portion.  If the State of Illinois Constitution amounts to nothing more than used toliet paper; why should anyone believe in a "promise" from Illinois legislators, and another corrupt governor.

Quinn should publish his visits in advance so those who will perish in poverty can be on hand to greet him.   His appearance at the 2012 State Fair must have scared him from meeting his fellow citizens.  Illinois is the most corrupt state in the union.  Illinois is not The Land of Lincoln.  It is the Land of Thieves.  Everyone knows it; but no one does anything about it.
