tc h: Illinois/Chicago is a disaster a long time in the making. Many people don't have the means to move, otherwise they would. The corruption and the public unions finally caught up with the state. They should tax those public pensions that they gave away, when they could not afford it. When you say you are from Illinois, it's like saying you are from Gary, Indiana. They need to start the corruption over with, and declare bankruptcy at both the city level and state level.
