Illinois: Coming to a state near you

Illinois is in worse fiscal shape than California and has only one third the population.  Politicians at the State and Federal levels have been promising everything to everybody for years and it's coming time to pay the piper.  The time is coming, and may be here, when "the State" no longer has the money for the functions it's supposed to perform because all the money is going to retirees and schools.  Firemen?  Police?  Sewer and Water and Garbage? -- go ask the teacher's unions for those services.  Go ask all the state-funded workers who took 20 years and out.
