Yes, I know I posted this yesterday. I wouldn’t be re-posting this picture if it wasn’t vital to understanding what is happening to Illinois.
Government across Illinois exists for government employees.
It does not exist to handle problems citizens can not handle themselves. This is the proof:
An overwhelming percent of the debt is to pay people not to work.

Normal isn’t any better:
$101 million dollars owed to people who are contributing nothing to citizens or the Town. Add another $87,660,834 Normal has racked up in debt.
Bloomington: $158,900,000 for people not working. The debt for the Coliseum and BCPA are minor in comparison.
The State of Illinois is in the same position. Soon they will only be able to pay pensions, and Medicaid.
Think Normal should be finding $10,000,000 for an underpass?
We are run by idiots. Understand Limited Government now?
