Missouri Economic Stimulus may be in the works . . . thanks to Illinois

The ouster of Rod Blagojevich from the Illinois governor's office may have big benefits for Missouri (and Indiana and every other state bordering Illinois).  How?  His replacement, fellow Democrat Pat Quinn plans a 50% income tax increase on Illinois families making over $56,000 per year.  (Link to story here.)

If the Illinois legislature is dumb enough to go along with the plan, it won't take long for businesses and residents to flee the state.

As a Missourian, I have to say, "Thanks Pat!  Good luck!"

One thing Blago was good for - cutting taxes and cutting spending.
