The Weekend Woz

March Madness with The Woz!

The Woz:

Sweet Sixteen! Go Iowa State! #Cyclones

Illinois Policy:

Illinois has added more people to food stamps than payroll jobs since January 2011 illin.is/1jh8V8b

This is about the failure of the massive tax hike in 2011. Besides the food stamp increase:

1. Unpaid bills: $7B
2. Interest payment: 3.5 times higher than ’11
3. Credit rating: downgraded 5 times since tax hike
4. Pension debt: still unsustainable
5. Unemployment: third highest in the nation

So what did Madigan recently put forward as a solution to fund education? Tax the rich! How novel! How original! How worthless! Reset time!

The Woz:

Senate confirms controversial prison chief bit.ly/1rkbmMP

This is in Illinois and frankly, I’m beyond shock when this sort of thing happens, but the one thing I did find interesting in the link is this:

“Among the no-shows for the [senate committee] hearing…Mike Jacobs (D-Dodger)”
