There are least 2 similar economic laws that Illinois and California have ignored.
1. "There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch!" There is always a payment by somebody at some level and at some time for whatever is being provided.
2. "You cannot consume more than you produce." The "you" in this case is a plural pronoun encompassing a population growing from family to town to county to state to nation until no resources are available for redistribution.
