How Bad Is the Crisis in Illinois? It Has $14.6 Billion in Unpaid Bills and an Exodus from Violence

How Bad Is the Crisis in Illinois? It Has $14.6 Billion in Unpaid Bills – WSJ Illinois is a unique state what with many revolving Democratic and Republican governors convicted of crimes while in office.. Yep, that’s the truth. Google it. And it is the city where the South Side was organized by Barack Obama as his major career accomplishment before a short stint as state legislator followed by a shorter one in the US Senate, who then quickly was elected President of the US. Before taking office he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, for get this, stating he did not want any more wars.
