“In 2006 before the Democrats took control of the House and Senate unemployment in Illinois was 5%. In several Illinois counties, the unemployment rate is 14% and those figures aren't even a true reflection of how sickly bad it is! C'mon now, spin it however you want, but, it is the Democrats who have been in control of the legislative process for almost four years now and it is they who have failed, dug in and doubled downed.”

“Sorry, too many X files episodes for you 56. 30 years of repub trickle down and corporate outsourcing has driven the unemployment. Shrubs policies just drove it off the cliff. So dig in and double down again Xfile.”

“Why should we as a nation look to the average salaries of CEOs when deciding what to pay White House staffers? Used to be public servants served for a couple years and then returned to their farms, businesses and families back home. Now they go to K Street and elected officials become career politicians.”
