Re: For you people that believe the lie,

Yes,but KS, WI are better case studies. Neither had huge long term structural problems before the leech cure was applied.

 

IL and Chicago really are the poster children for giving public unions too much- particularly in pensions. Chicago is a lot more broke than Detroit ever was except they're still producing enough cash flow to cover it.

 

And of course it also has a huge history of corruption- both Republican and Democrat.

 

4 of the last 7 Governors have gone to jail, 3 of them democrats.

 

Gov. Ryan was a Republican, as was Denny Hastert who was famously corrupt as well as other things.

But he made himself useful.
