I am a liberal progressive living in the state of Illinois whose legislative body is controlled by the Democratic Party.
As a liberal progressive, must I support this kind of fiscal irresponsibility? Why can’t Illinois Democrats fix this miserable financial situation? We control the legislature and have for some time. I do not believe that holding liberal progressive values means that one must put up with extreme fiscal irresponsibility.
Come on, Democrats. Do something! Do it now!
Charles James Moody
Editorial Response: We’re well beyond “tad above junk.” Our bonds are rated AT junk rating for a while now. The current miserable financial quandry the state is in is the fault of the political duopoly; Democrats and Republicans are each to blame for this crisis.
