Illinois like another beautiful place run into the ground by big spending liberals, Puerto Rico.

"Illinois is deep in debt. It's got a public pension system that is not far behind Puerto Rico's in terms of potential insolvency," Brannon said. "It's made promises to a whole lot of people that it simply cannot keep and the current legislature has shown itself uninterested in dealing with the situation. I think that how we deal with Puerto Rico is how the market is going to see a potential Illinois solution."

Gov. Rauner has been trying to get it done. Madigan and everyone else in the machine need to GO.
