Letter: Madigan is voters' fault

To the Editor:

Everyday in this newspaper I see Madigan did this or Madigan did that. Comments, complaints , but nothing about what to do. Well, right now you can do nothing. The damage has been done, and we the people again have been shafted.

But how? Look at the past elections where there is 12 percent, or 18 percent or maybe 22 percent turnout, and these people keep voting in the same jerks who continue to screw us. And these same idiots keep voting Madigan in as speaker of the House.

So for all those who just could not be bothered to vote, thank you. But you along with the rest of us just got clobbered with a 32 percent tax increase, all because you could not be bothered to go and vote. Smile when you tell your wife you can’t eat out as much or when you tell your kids “we have to cut back on Dairymart.” But remember, there are more elections, and again if you don’t stay home, the state of Illinois might make you smile again.
