American citizens need to wake up. We are under a dictatorship of the Democratic president and his personal lawmakers in Washington, D.C., who forced a health care law on us.
The same thing applies to the citizens of Illinois. Our lawmakers in Springfield passed two bills in 2013 that not everyone is happy with.
Illinois is in bad shape. They have five pension funds $100 billion short of cash. Unemployment is very high, and our tax rate is causing businesses to leave our state. And Chicago is a war zone.
The lawmakers are ignoring the major problems, and they passed a budget to get even with the governor.
I'm 71, and I've always thought the majority rules in America.
The bills they are passing should have been put on the ballot for the citizens to have their right to accept or deny. We elected these politicians to balance the budget and to keep American safe. They have done nothing at all.
