Any warm body that can get this State back on track, and get us the people on the right track to economic recovery. Chicago should not run this state! I for one am tired of CROOKS from Chicago telling Springfield how to operate.

In front of the courthouse, Jackson's attorney, Reid Weingarten, said he is hopeful that Jackson's illness and the fact that he has young children will lessen his sentence. "There will be another chapter in Jesse Jackson's life," he predicted.

Possibly. But you don't need a gold-plated Rolex to know this will take some time.

You work and live in Illinois. Your salary, before that knock on your office door, is $50,000. That puts you in between pauper and prince and approximately the per-capita income in the state. As you contemplate a weekend spending spree at a local mall or along North Michigan Avenue, exactly how much better off are you?

First, you would face a 25 percent marginal tax rate on your federal tax obligation. There goes $250 right off the top. But the feds also want 6.2 percent for Social Security the payroll or FICA tax and an additional 1.45 percent for Medicare taxes. And Gov. Pat Quinn would expect a $50 check for the 5 percent state income tax.

So before you park your car or step off that bus, your $1,000 increase has dwindled to about $623. Then, in looking at price tags on sweaters, housewares and toys, you have to remember that you will have to pay about 10 percent of each item in state and local sales taxes. Thus, what is the maximum amount of merchandise you could actually haul to the cash registers? About $566.

The bottom line is that the typical person in Chicago already faces approximately a 44 percent effective tax rate.(And if your boss doubled your salary you would now be in a higher federal income tax bracket 28 percent instead of 25.)

I am for anyone but Quinn, he took at bad problem & made it worst. He basicly turned the state the next Califorina. Its going to take awhile to get our AAA rating back & I hope Quinn gets out of office soon. Quinn is a JOKE not a govenor.
