The state of Illinois is billions of dollars in debt and is attempting austerity measures that will cut into the lives of vulnerable retirees. Oh, but that's good news for the Illinois Department of Transportation. They think they can just waltz in and take the money that was meant to reduce the debt and spending deficit for themselves, totally oblivious to the fact that the state's fiscal disaster is driving out businesses who are not interested in paying higher taxes for precisely this kind of stupidity.
