The recent national attention on the Wisconsin legislature and Governor often showed them as bad guys out to destroy families. Many of the Democratic Wisconsin legislators fled to Illinois to keep any of those poor state employees to lose anything, most likely not out of any pity in their hearts but fear of losing their seats in the government. A friend in Peoria gave me some re-prints from the Illinois Tax Payers Association that show what Wisconsin and Illinois have in common, Democratic controlled governments and out of control state pensions that all the taxpayers pay for, but few can match as few have pensions in today’s world.
