In the middle of the worse recession to ever hit the US the government's answer to overspending is..... Tax the hell out of them. Illinois raising state income tax 66% is just the tip of the iceberg. It is happening everywhere at all levels of government. City, state, and Federal governments are all raising taxes or talking about raising taxes. The "new" congress Republicans are working feverishly to cut some 100 billion. Yes it is a start but if they can not find a 100 billion of fat pretty quickly I would like to send up my six year old grandson "JW". I bet he could find it faster than those idiots! We are doomed!
