The hard working employees of the Great State of Illinois deserve every dime they are entitled to for there pensions. As your Senator I understand all taxes and fees are rising at an exponential rate the only comment I have on this is shut up and keep supporting the Democrat's fools.

Why would any sane person vote republican
Take a look at southern il, especially W. Frankfort, and see the result of voting democrat. So. Ill. is, has always been, and will remain a welfare community, composed of white trash reliefers and other types who live off others!

The real problem is all the freakin cash we give to Seniors. They are living way too long (another reason to vote against obama care). Give them dollar for dollar what they put into social security and thats it. End their medicare and make them pay. If they are broke they can cut my lawn after we send the mexicans back to mexico.

Financial disclosure statements that are required of U.S. House members show Emanuel made at least $320,000 from his time at Freddie Mac. Two years after leaving the firm, Emanuel reported an additional sale of Freddie Mac stock worth between $100,001 and $250,000. The document did not detail whether he profited from the sale.

Sarah Feinberg, a spokeswoman for Emanuel, said there was no conflict between his stint at Freddie Mac and Obama's vow to restore confidence in financial institutions and the executives who run them. At the same time, Feinberg said Emanuel now agrees that presidential appointees to the Freddie Mac board "are unnecessary and don't have long enough terms to make a difference."

Former President George W. Bush voluntarily stopped making such appointments following Falcon's assessment of their uselessness.

In an interview, Falcon said the Freddie Mac board did most of its work in committees. Yet proxy statements that detailed committee assignments showed none for Emanuel, Free or Ickes during the time they served in 2000 or 2001. Most other directors carried two committee assignments each.

Contrary to the proxy statements, Feinberg said she believed that Emanuel served on board committees that oversaw Freddie Mac's investment strategies and mortgage purchase activities. But Feinberg acknowledged she had no official documents to back up that assertion.

The Obama administration rejected a Tribune request under the Freedom of Information Act to review Freddie Mac board minutes and correspondence during Emanuel's time as a director. The documents, obtained by Falcon for his investigation, were "commercial information" exempt from disclosure, according to a lawyer for the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

Emanuel's board term expired in May 2001, and soon after he launched his Democratic congressional bid.

One of Emanuel's fellow directors at Freddie Mac was Neil Hartigan, the former Illinois attorney general. Hartigan said Emanuel's primary contribution was explaining to others on the board how to play the levers of power.

You are the reason some species eat their young.
A total piece of crap.
The seniors are the ones that made this country what it is today for your worthless ass to sit and draw unemployment and work a 40 hr work week.
When you get to the point where you work from craddle to grave.
You'll be saying god I wished I had medicare and s.s like my parents.
But no you want to do away with it.
Stop the fraud and the borrowing from s.s. and it would be ok.
By the way dumbass, buy a vowel or get a clue. S.S. IS NOT AN ENTITLEMENT PROGRAM. At this time it supports it self.
Pay back all the money stole and borrowed from it.

You could not be more right.
The government has stolen all of which we paid in and more.

These dumbass punks have no clue what was agreed to by the government and US.

Unfortunately the government did not keep their promise. Imagine that.

Piss on these little punk bastards. I only want what I am entitled to.
You are a jerk

My mother in law , widow is 87 years young, her husband was a disabled WWII Veteran. Her monthly income is $670. a month. Medicare is what she depends on, and Medicaid. She had to stay at home to take care of him because of his war injuries. You have a lot of nerve, those people are the reason why you have the freedoms today. Maybe you will be so deserving to get help when you get old, as you have shown the mercy and respect you have given our Seniors. You sound like a spoiled brat, who has no respect for anyone, except yourself. I feel sorry for you parents and grandparents, God help them because you won't. One more question, how long is too long, becareful God just might take you out at that age. He knows our thoughts before we even think them.

The democrats in and from Illinois have doomed us all. They don't follow any accounting procedures! They beleive that the taxpayers are an ATM Machine.

The formula is very simple and applied in their own homes: DON'T SPEND MORE THAN YOU TAKE IN ! It is that simple. But because of the special interests that have to be satisfied, he allows QUINN PRO QUO's to dominate their logic and policy!

VOTE REPUBLICAN !!!!

Get rid of all the Democrats and Republicans . We need a new bunch, they are all robbers. They all vote to make Chicago richer, and down state poorer.

Why can't they just divide the state of Illinois and give the northern counties along with Chicago their own state and let central and southern Illinois be separate? The northern counties get everything, and it is obvious we get the left overs in the south. We should get rid of all of the state officials, in every state and all congressmen and make it mandatory to only hold their positions for two to four years, and can only run twice like the President. Things would be much simpler, and they would be busting their butts to do a good job, instead of turning into fat cats and not getting to comfortable in their positions. The people need to start standing up. Things are getting way to out of hand. Instead of giving them huge retirement packages, they could get the same benefits as a regular state of federal employee. There would be a lot more money, and it would clean up the dirty scoundrels who are only for themselves, and their friends who needs to GO! Let the poor and middle class have a better chance , neither sides seems to care anymore.

Got news flash for you joe smo! I live in a northern county and we don't get shit.
Heres a better idea---lets just get rid of chicago all together.
If you down staters want it, your welcome to it. In that fact, whom ever wants them can have them. I am tired of them dictating the laws of the state.
I see our taxes will be going up because of the pensions being pushed off on each of the counties.

Who else thinks chicago should become it's own state?
