Illinois Worst Again With Highest Home Foreclosure Rate in Nation

-By Warner Todd Huston

A website that tracks bank foreclosures on homes across the nation finds that Barack Obama’s Illinois has once again become the worst state in the country for people losing their homes. reports that one in ever 747 homes have received a foreclosure notice in the Land of Lincoln. By comparison, the national average in one in every 1,203 homes.

This is a worse standing than just a few months ago when Illinois ranked third worst in the nation in July.

The worst foreclosure rates are occurring in the northeastern corner of the state ranging from the metropolitan Chicago area westward to Rockford. upwards to 70 percent of the state’s population lives in this area.

Illinois is the fifth most populous state in the nation.

It’s just one more mark of how bad Illinois is thanks to the corrupt Democrat Party led by the feckless Pat Quinn and the corrupt Mike Madigan and the useless Illinois GOP that can’t find any candidates to challenge them.

Here are some more of Illinois worst hits:
