Illinois is not bankrupt. The problem is they have a government shut down in a fight between the Democratic Legislature and the Republican Governor. The legislature has tax increases in the new budget to make up for shortfalls and Governor refuses to sign it because he wants to some kind of reforms added. So what this is, is simply your typical party politics. With neither side giving a crap about the people. They could have settles this before it got this far but, you know screw common sense.
Is it me reading American politics wrong, or are there a large number of incidents, where Republicans are purposely blocking Democrats with the express purpose to make people thing it's the Democrats fault?

imagine going into the casino and hitting the Caribbean stud jackpot or that 20,000$ spin and they hand you an IOU.
