I had heard on the Radio that our new Senator from Peoria, Ms. Gordon, had just made some statements in Peoria to the effect of: 300 million dollars that will not be paid to local governments… This hurts us more than it helps the Illinois budget problem. (paraphrasing)
Ha Ha Ha Ha. Are you kidding me??? This is the sense of entitlement that totally screws everyone. ESPECIALLY when we are in debt.
If you cant make cuts at the local level… Then how do you think the State and Federal levels can do it?
