It has to be some kind of joke that Gov. Pat Quinn and Democrats are running a class war based on the supposition that they can create jobs, help the middle class and reduce unemployment.
The unemployment rate in Illinois--8.7 percent--is the third worst in the nation.
Might you think that Democrats, who have had a veto-proof majority in the House and Senate and who have occupied the governor's office for years might in some way be responsible for what's happening. They can hardly blame Republicans (or, as is their wont, George W. Bush).
I'd advise Quinn and his fellow Democrats not to take their ridiculous campaign theme to, say, Harvey, Chicago Heights, Waukegan, Round Lake Beach and other Illinois towns whose unemployment rate is well into the double digits. Here is a chart listing them all, courtesy of Reboot Illinois:
