How do you know the state is broke? because the government and media told you? Other say we would be just fine if not for being robbed by money interests and corporations.
Is the Koch Brothers funded Illinois Policy Institute now the unofficial spokesperson for the Rauner administration. He uses and quotes their lies about Illinois jobs, unions and families as he dismantles Illinois public finances for the benefit of corporations and money interests. this is how he and Mit Romney got rich, not from honest profit and loss businesses, but off of a neo-predatory capitalist takeover of legitimate and profitable companies that w ere carved up and sold in pieces for the profit of vultures like Rauner. He is now doing to Illinois that he did to untold companies, workers and families.
Illinois is broke. How do you know? Where are the non-partisan number. Why do you believe that, but nothing else from the “government?” Where are numbers from unbiased parties that simply want to break the backs of unions as the economic vultures simply wish to drive down wages and your family’s lifestyle and security to enrich Rauner’s friends. The state is not broke. If it was, how could it afford to give away billions to corporations, or forgive billions to corporations in taxes? That’s okay, we’ll make up the difference in red light and speed cameras, and then next years property tax increase, or by cutting assistance to your grandmother. Rauner announced 12% cuts to elderly care and medical availability, but promises incentives to corporations. He will kill the elderly with his cruel and fraudulent policies. He knows they are a fraud, unless he is fundamentally incompetent. Either way, through malicious intent, fraud or ignorance, that is murder, in my opinion.
