As the Land of Lincoln continues to circle the drain, a new report shows that Illinois has nudged over 10% unemployment. According to the Associated Press Illinois clocks in at 10.1% unemployment as of October putting the state above the national average of 9%.
We are the highest. Yaaaa, us.
Meanwhile, Illinois figures in at the bottom of nearly every category to measure economic growth.
- Illinois ranks as one of the worst states in which to do business.
- The state has some of the most abusive lawsuits that damage businesses and jobs in the country.
- Chicago became the only one-million-plus city in America to lose population in the last census.
So, we are losing businesses, we are losing jobs, we are losing population and what do the Democrats and our feckless accidental Governor Pat Quinn want to do? Why raise taxes and fees even higher, of course.
Anyone that votes for a Democrat is voting for the total destruction of Illinois.
