Illinois is the most corrupt, most broke, worst job-creating state in the country. Taxpayers and companies are permanently fleeing from Illinois at a faster rate than out of any other state. Gov. Pat Quinn is irrelevant. Michael Madigan runs this state, and he and his Democrat followers are responsible for the disaster that is Illinois. The Illinois Republican Party has been a willing accomplice to this crime because they’ve been missing in action for years and have been only too happy to go along with Madigan and take whatever crumbs of power the Democrats will give them. Illinois will never recover unless the Republican Party quits this cowardly arrangement, reforms, makes the case for freedom and limited government, and fights like hell.
