With the state's credit rating the worst in the nation, can Gov. Quinn give us a reason to be hopeful?

Nope, unfortunately I think he's talking about IL having the lowest credit in the U.S., we're finally number 1 in something!

Illinois also has $9 Billion in unpaid bills (even after raising taxes 66%). The Land of Lincoln also has a pension debt of $94 billion.
Across the state line in Indiana, Republican Mitch Daniels just stepped down after serving two terms as governor. Indiana has a AAA credit rating, $500 million budget surplus and $2 billion in reserves.

Being a state with some of the highest wages in the country, it is hard to process that we cannot get a budget that works. The amount of corruption and waste in Illinois is staggering. Governor Ryan should have got the death penalty, Blagoyovich is right where he belongs and Quinn should be in the cell next to him. Illinois sucks!

So far, no one I have voted for in this state has been elected, so I can safely say that none of this is my fault. I can also safely say the blame rests solely on every imbecile that did vote for all of the current crooks in office past and present who have led us here, and you know what? The imeciles will vote for all of the crooks again. Too bad we can't outlaw stupidity.

The problem in Illinois is every politician is a crook, so no matter who you vote for, you get a crook!
