While admitting that Illinois lawmakers screwed up by spending far too much money, Governor Quinn framed the malfeasance in a 35-year window, which is incorrect. By the end of his second term in 1999, a mere 13-years ago, Governor Jim Edgar had brought the Illinois money problems under full control. Before and since Jim Edgar, Illinois has been under the bipartisan control of self-serving fiscal-imbeciles.
Please consider voting career politicians out of office at every opportunity. “Do it for the children.”
