Illinois Comptroller Can’t Pay Legislators Due To Pension Crisis, When Will Media Report? | NewsBusters
By Matt Vespa
As members of America’s news media fail to recognize that Detroit went bankrupt due to decades of Democratic Party rule, they’ll probably execute the same protocol when they cover Illinois’ pension fiasco, which happens to be the worst in the country.
In fact, it’s so bad that the Illinois Comptroller has told legislators that they won’t be paid until this matter is resolved. Democratic Governor Pat Quinn has also nixed his own pay until the issue is addressed. It seems that all is not well in President Obama’s home state, which is probably why the media isn’t giving it the proper attention.
