A new measure of Illinois' economic sickness

Study after study, ranking after ranking, by whatever measure you use, Illinois is a disaster. Although Democrats who mostly created this mess won't acknowledge it.

The new measure--"New Hampshire’s “Economic Advantage” index - what does it tell Illinois?"--provided by Truth in Accounting shows that Illinois is at a huge disadvantage compared with its neighboring states.

What does the Democratic candidate for governor, J.B. Pritzker offer to get us out of this mess? Nothing but higher taxes that will only further enable the corrupt state to get even more corrupt.
