The State of Ill and especially Chicago plan on demanding a bailout before they have to declare bankruptcy. Their retirement systems are billions in debt. The reason of course is the fact that democrats have been in charge for decades and have voted for huge obscene retirements for teachers and other b'crats. There is simply no reason for the feds (taxpayers) should bail them out. Most of the rest of the country has seen to it retirement systems pay a responsible amount of money for those that retire. The Feds should say no way. Since your voters kept voting in the foolish democrats that GAVE AWAY those kinds of retirement money, pay for it yourselves. Raise taxes on those in Chicago and Ill and let them pay for their own stupidity!!!!!!!!!!!! What is worse is NY and Calif are not far behind. Tell their taxpayers the same thing. First of all it is not fair to the rest of the countries taxpayer that were frugal and logical, and it opens the flood gate for other states. The national debt is now probably over 25 TRILLION DOLLARS. Let all those states that wants a bailout be responsible for a change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
