Remember, IL is a state that has long been RULED OVER by DEMOCRATS - aka communists.

You can see the results of their tax & redistribute schemes have done to this state.

Obongo's own slogan "Communism you can believe in" started here.

Study what the dems "rewarding failure and punishing achiement" policies have done to this state.

I have been trying to pull attention to this for a very long time - it's isn't just the state reps that are overpaid - all political employees, state employees in certain positions are being overpaid as well. Take a 'manager' in the Unemployment office in SPFLD - she makes $74,000 a year - so if she is making that kind of money how much do you think the ones above her are making? This entire state is corrupt and has been since the 1900's - crooks learn here! They have a lot of teachers! Everyone in business or workig for the state, towns,cities, etc.

This is exactly why we need new goverment. Pat Quinn wants to raise the peoples taxes because we have a deficet but allows this to go on. These are the people in charge. They do not care about us at all. They do not even have the spine to talk to the people in person. They send a spokes person. I will not vote for any body in office. We need a change and it is definetly not you blood suckers. I would hope the the people in charge would know that stealing is a crime but I guess I wish for to much. Enjoy your salaries because come election time your rein of ripping the people off is going to come to an end.

I change channels every time Elliott Davis tries to humiliate people. I'm not sure how much he is paid but, whatever it is, he is grossly overpaid!

I do agree the House Members are overpaid. I'm a working mom for 60 hrs a week and taking a pay cut to support my family and I would be lucky to get pay $20,000 annual (I am thankful for that). The house fair value as St. Clair County giving us is $148,000 (I bought this house 11 yrs ago for $8,7000). If the St. Clair County or anybody willing to pay this price than my house is consider SOLD, what a joke. Not even mention everything else went up. St. Clair County raise $600 on my property tax this year and my other two children enroll High School this year and book rental went up as well (my daughter 9th grade $150.00 and my son 10th grade $200.00 on the book rental) and also they call "Vehicle Register annual fee”$20 per car to ensure some city worker s’ job. My question is who is going to ensure my job? I am sure there are some of you working middle class are living pay check by pay check and trying really really hard to make it though. We did our sacrificed, would be nice the government stop taking from the middle class people. Look at Hillary cliton daughter’s wedding. That just makes me sick!!! I think Eliott Davis is great, thank you!

It is awful living in Illinois, when the only candidates for election are incompetent, foul, and buffoons. When someone coined the phrase "garbage in, garbage out," they were speaking of the candidates in Illinois. What can citizens do when the parties throw such garbage into the winds?

JWR, stop voting for them and file complaints, plus make public what you know by talking to someone like Elliott! You have to be proactive if you want change - sitting and complaining about it won't change anything - you have to be come a mover and a shaker!
