This Illinois taxpayer has no tears for the demise of Illinois state worker pensions. We (the taxpayers) have been the ones holding the bag for out-of-control pensions. Dems have already hiked personal income taxes 66% (my wife was shocked when we did our taxes a few weeks ago), business taxes 47% (I believe). Job growth is in freefall, and the Dems are talking about yet another tax hike (after the elections, just like the first). I can't wait for Nov 6 to send an up-yours to the Dems.
