A Chicago Tribune editorial Thursday noted the following:
But while the obstructionists pretend that newcomer [Bruce] Rauner is the problem, Illinoisans are voting with their feet.
U.S. Census Bureau numbers show that in the most recent measured–July 2014 to July 2015–Illinois lost more people to outmigration than any other state.
That period marks the second year in a row that Illinois lost population.
Demographers already are speculating that Illinois will lose still another seat in the U.S. House.
How much longer until the remaining citizens of Illinois demand that their legislators change course and revive their state?
Last Sunday at the First Methodist Church of Crystal Lake we sat behind a couple from Sun City.
I mentioned that I thought the price of homes would really go down if the legislature decided to tax retirement income.
The wife agreed, telling us that a retirement tax was the talk of the area.
