Illinois Politicians Look Overseas to Demand Chinese Authoritarianism and Spanish Efficiency

Anne Leary 10 July 2012 No Comment

We had the model of a modern RINO in the O administration, Transportation Sec. Ray LaHood, who hailed from Peoria, recently waxing lyrical on the Commies over China way:

 

Ray LaHood, pride of the IL combine one party state: LaHood: Golly, I envy the Chinese government

Ray LaHood, dumber than Joe Biden, and less entertaining

What next. The Obama model state of Illinois plays true to type. Brain-dead leadership operating in a bubble. My savvy friend Mary writes in:

Governor Quinn is promoting Illinois to Spain as the perfect place to do business. Is it our high tax rates? Our failing schools? Our unfunded debt? The ever increasing rate of violent crime in our major city? At least he choose a place with a higher unemployment rate. I wonder if we can file a FOI request to review the documents he presented to their business and government leaders? Should make for great summertime reading…….

The trip is “unannounced“. So some vestige of sense remains.

I hear the trains in Spain run mainly in the plain. Why not stay there. Or take the bus back.

…perhaps some local sport.

Meanwhile, back at the Illinois ranch, the state’s iffy pension assumptions are getting hit hard.
