Marathon Pundit received this e-mail from the Joe Birkett people about Rod Blagogevich's pension-fund raiding budget that will foul up Illinois for decades.
"Somebody should have put money in this budget to find Rod Blagojevich's self-proclaimed testicular virility because what he engineered is hundreds of pages of weak-kneed leadership.
He simply tucked his fortitude in his pocket and took the easy way out
-- passing along billions of dollars in burdens to future generations of Illinoisans.
We elected a governor to lead us through tough economic times. He let us down again."
And this comes to us from a Sunday Daily Herald editorial:
As a way to fix the current budget problems, the Democratic leadership is ready to push through a proposal to pass as much as $1.1 billion in pension debt onto future generations. The state would skip part of next year’s payment into its employee pension system and use the money to fill a $1.2 billion hole in the budget.
