I moved to the Chicago area because of my job over 4 years ago. This state is probably the worse when it comes to taxes and politics. What I find hard to believe is the fact that Governor Quinn actually told the people Before the election that he wanted to raise taxes by 50% - and THEY still re-elected him.
This state deserves everything it get (high property taxes, high sales taxes, rapid income tax increase, etc). I guess budget cuts are out of the question because it's the free welfare/LINK card benefits secures votes for the liberals.
