For years, Illinois state government has ignored its most fundamental responsibilities. Career politicians have driven the state into the ground with unbalanced budgets and reckless spending, resulting in one of the highest tax burdens in the nation. Despite stifling taxes, Illinois politicians have failed to make full pension payments and now taxpayers are on the hook for $111 billion of unfunded pension liability.
