Ill-served in Illinois

To the Editor:

The wailing continues: “We are ill-served here in Illinois.”

The squawking by the Democrats to create more jobs here, etc., is a dud in Chicago, with an alderman, Joe Moreno, who goes to quickly appease gays, thus denying jobs to his area.

The head lackey in Washington, D.C., Sen. Dick Durbin, continues his outstanding work of doing nothing. House Republican Leader Tom Cross pretends to serve us, but in reality remains dormant.

Gov. Pat Quinn, a Chicago Democrat, lacks in all status. Are we to enjoy all this taxation? Springfield is now known as “Madiganville” (nepotism rules).

Our U.S. Senate is loaded with do-nothings, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, et. al., who are so leftist.Nancy Pelosi is the chief female whose rhetoric is stale.

Our local congressman, Randy Hultgren, is still treading water. He never returns calls or responds to correspondence, and has a rude staff.

We are ill-served in Illinois.
