Now here's a great idea from Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Proft. Noting that Illinois bonds have been downgraded thanks to irresponsible and incompetent state legislators, he suggests that instead of getting paid in dollars, they should be forced to take their salary in state bonds.
As good as the idea is, however, I don't think it goes far enough. They should be paid in worthless confederate dollars. Like that currency, Illinois legislators, who are leading the state into bankruptcy, are totally worthless.
