Why Quinn are you doing this again, closing the prisons. Thank you for the most horrible Christmas gift you could give to the families of the inmates and the staff. You say the monies will go to welfare, what a joke! Because of the taxes I lost my home of 20 years along with a lot of other home owners. I was refused welfare, I have nothing! No job, no home, and now no more visits with my daughter! I sure hope you enjoy your Christmas with YOUR family!
Gov you are ok

Release the non-violent drug offenders and other non-threatening violators. Keep the animals and beasts behind bars until they die. Tell the public sector unions to go to hell. Fire 20 percent of the teachers-the worthless ones. Cut the pensions by 10 percent and freeze all pensions until Illinois balances it's budget. Make teachers and other public sector employees work until they are 65. Get real you idiots!!!
