Don't Be Distracted By The Flailing About of Illinois Democrats

Now the Morris Daily Herald is reminding voters the same thing.  In a piece called:  "Don't Get Distracted" they lay out the case against Governor Pat Quinn, Speaker Mike Madigan and Democrat State Senator Mike Frerichs:
Illinois’ dire fiscal situation is well-documented.

It’s public pension systems are underfunded by more than $1 billion.
The state ended its last fiscal year with more than $7 billion in unpaid bills.
Illinois has the nation’s second-highest property taxes, the fourth-highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world, and the fourth-highest workers’ compensation costs in the nation.
It has the second highest unemployment rate in the country, and the worst credit rating of all 50 states. 
These are the facts, and they aren’t pretty. 
These also are the issues that voters must focus on as the campaign for governor now turns to two people – Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn and Republican challenger Bruce Rauner. 
In the months leading up to the Nov. 4 general election, expect to hear tons of campaign rhetoric from both sides. A lot of it will be nothing but noise, meant to distract voters from the issues that matter. 
But don’t be distracted. Tune out the nonsense and focus on each candidate’s plans to return Illinois to a fiscally solvent state.
Take the advice, voters.

Sorry.  Just testing you...
