Letter: Illinois' biggest problem

To the Editor:

We all know about J.B. Pritzker's toilet problem and Paul Ryan owning seven homes. Why would anyone want to own more than his home and a vacation home?

I will vote for the candidate that states problem and how he/she will fix it. The best problem solver gets my vote. Since the above and their friend, Mike, all they know is to tax and spend.

Illinois cannot print money. They must tax it or borrow it. Have they tried not spending it. The standard way to solve the Illinois debt crisis at this state is to issue I.O.U. to the pensioner. I know of a high school librarian receiving $125,000 per year.

I'm sure accounting tricks were used to get it up that high. So a new rule, accept $2,000 per month plus social security or get your I.O.U. and sell them to whoever.
