Why is every answer to every problem in this state about raising taxes? It is the ONLY solution according to the Democrats. I swear they sit there in a "tax think tank" coming up with this crap. It reminds me of the time that some Democrat was asking for well over a million or more dollars in order to make the Illinois.gov site accessible in Spanish.
A Republican said it could be done for free by adding "Google Translate" to the pages. I bet his friend or relative who was counting on that million or more wasn't too happy about that simple solution.
Pork, waste, corruption, pensions, more tax, tax, tax. That should be our state motto.
