Fiscal Incompetence in Illinois

Dennis Byrne 25 November 2008 No Comment

If Illinois were a country, it would be Iceland.

That’s the country whose high-flying economy collapsed recently, the first to fail in the global economic slump. Crowds, angry at the government’s failure to prevent the crisis, have taken to the streets and called for an immediate election.

Don’t expect any mobs to show up in Illinois demanding the expulsion of our government for Illinois’ fiscal mess. Illinois voters are so tolerant that the government could sell the state to the Outfit for a box of trinkets and no one would notice. Illinois voters have no reason to feel smug about letting conditions get as far out of hand as they did in Iceland.
