I can't believe they haven't caught those two escaped convicts yet. Last I heard they were keying in on a area not far from Clinton correctional facility. Hope they catch them soon.

Illinois public pensions were actually overfunded the political powers in charge decided not to fund them till the amount came or down to neutral

They let it go into the Red without funding it

FLOTUS is having kidney surgery at Walter Reed:

Melania Trump surgery

Sounds like a routine minor procedure; I've heard that before. Hopefully all goes well.

Many if not most defined benefit pensions are underfunded due to excessive growth assumptions and low level fiduciary responsibility.  Ive ranted on here before how my own DBP through the labor union is near worthless.  Not in the mood to rant again  not right now anyway.  Come to think of it my plan is headquartered near Chicago.

Wow River chaser.  That 1% of value  increase in property tax is huge.  How the state of IL can’t make ends meet on their pension when they don’t even have to pay into Social Security is reprehensible.  That means they can use that employer portion of 7.5% of salary/ wages towards their pension.  And yet they are still tens of billions underfunded.

Look for royalties to be demanded by players, teams and leagues.  More to this than meets the eye.

More sports betting is a great idea. I think adding even more money to the sports world will kill sports forever. Then the masses will have to find a new opiate. Let's hope it chooses better next time.

How Illinois is looking to solve the pension failures

Yikes

problem is it solves only 1% of failing plans

Wasnt it Roy Rodgers who quippped that purpose of financial disaster to to remind us that the most educated folks arent so smart.
