This is just the beginning.  Local, state and federal pensions are insolvent.  Sure the government's are going into debt and it isn't affecting most of us yet, but it will.

Promising someone to work for 35 years, not even put 10% of their paycheck away to retirement and give them a full pension from 58 years of age to 90 is unsustainable and the taxpayers who have to work until they are eligible for SS will not pay for it. 

Does Detroit and Flint deserve a bailout?  Hell no.

Does the postal service need a bailout?  Hell no.

Does Illinois deserve a bail out?  Hell no.

Does every government employee eventually need a bailout? (Because it's a matter of time until they do).  Hell no.

Better start a 401k like everyone else.

Drain the swamp and end greedy government pensions for lackluster work performance.

And, remember: Chicago is the murder capital of America, maybe even of the entire world.

What do you think will happen when the Illinois Government becomes broke and can't pay any more bills?  I can't see the Federal Government bailing out a state.  It would set an ugly precedence for the next state (California?).

My oldest sister lives in Illinois. I wouldn't mind seeing her move out of this state, because I hear so many bad things about Illinois. My guess is that she has no choice but to stay where she is, though I'm not sure, myself. My mother probably knows more about my oldest sister's situation, since she occasionally talks to her on the phone. My oldest sister also lives near the Chicago area, by the way.

Probably best to move out. I wouldn't be surprised to see property values fall.

Probably another of the progs' horrors from the Trump victory.  And one of their big reasons for desperately invoking impeachment, assassination, "insanity" / institutionionalizing, and so on.

He's not likely to allow a bailout for communist idiots in CA, IL, HI, CT.

Clinton-Obama would have given them each a trillion bucks  somehow, to keep perfecting the communism.

Hopefully Trump treats them like a failed division of his company.  Receivership, massive cutting to the bone, etc.

Oh how they'll squeal and scream "dictator !!"  "fascist !!"  "Murder !!".

As long as they have sanctuary cities or they are a sanctuary state.  No help, just die on the vine and take a dirt nap.

Illinois Comptroller: "The State Can No Longer Function"

Quote:
With just 10 days to go until Illinois enters its third year without a budget, resulting in the state's imminent downgrade to junk status and potentially culminating in a default for the state whose unpaid bills now surpass $15 billion, Democratic Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza issued a warning to Illinois Gov. Rauner and other elected officials on Tuesday, saying in a letter that her office has "very serious concerns" it may no longer be able to guarantee "timely and predictable payments" for some core services.

In the letter posted on her website, Mendoza who over the weekend warned that Illinois is "in massive crisis mode" and that "this is not a false alarm" said the state is "effectively hemorrhaging money" due to various court orders and laws that have left government spending roughly $600 million more a month than it's taking in.


Illinois has fallen below the Mendoza Line. Grin Grin (Baseball fans will understand that sentence.)

Mendoza Line
Quote:
The Mendoza Line is an expression in baseball in the United States, deriving from the name of shortstop Mario Mendoza, whose poor batting average is taken to define the threshold of incompetent hitting.

I wish I knew what those of us who DO NOT agree with Democrat politics can do.  We are totally outnumbered.  Dickie loves refugees, Rahm loves the sanctuary city, and many of us just despair at what goes on. 


Move? I am actually wondering where my state is getting all its money but, my roads are pretty nasty too.

I would say that the Guarantee was gone a long time ago if you are $15 Billion in debt.
