1)There are more people on Welfare in Illinois than there are people working.
2)Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. Averaging $110,000/year.
3)Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. You can't blame that on republicans because there aren't any.
Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what?
1)Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago .
2)221 killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.
The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
. Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago .
. Of course, they're all blaming each other.
. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
The Land of Lincoln , where our governors make our license plates.
But you know what? As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago,
Nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.
"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him;
Better take a closer look at the American Indian."
I wish PA had ZERO Republicans. The Republicans' latest budget passed on Monday and provides a pittance for public education, nothing to improve the condition of our substandard pothole filled roads and bridges, and fails to expand Medicaid so that PA loses over $3billion per year that remains in the federal treasury. PA's R Governor has earned the nickname, "One Term Tommy".
If IL has a few spare Democrats in their state legislature, we would really appreciate them here. Jobs are growing in IL, falling like a rock here in PA. IL Democrats, please help us here in PA!
