Indiana needs to maintain course, not be Illinois

In response to Rich James' column, “Indiana GOP leaders look to be on the losing side,” as we drive into Illinois, what do we find?

We find one of the highest homicide rates in the nation. In addition, we find some of the highest income and sales taxes in the nation, not to mention the state is bankrupt.

And, by the way, as we drive into Illinois they have some of the highest tolls in the nation as well. This, among other things, is why people and businesses are fleeing Illinois.

In 2 Timothy 4:7, Paul writes: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” (KJV)

Indiana needs to maintain the course the state Legislature has set before us.
