On July 27 it was said in Good Day Illinois that if Illinois legislators were paid on the basis of performance, they never would get paid. Remember – this is Illinois and incompetence is rewarded. The Illinois legislature is just another example. There is a rumor going around that members of the Illinois House (at taxpayer expense) will be taking a sabatical in Detroit to learn how to effectively raise taxes and complete the destruction of this state. Of course, that is a joke. Our Illinois legislators do not need lessons in how to raise taxes and destroy this state since they are already experts. Perhaps, Detroit learned from them!
