I find it fascinating to watch the Illinois budget fiasco being played out like a game of chicken between the Governor and the Senate. The Senate just overrode the Governor's veto of a tax increase. While this is good to stave off a downgrade to junk status, it is not so good for the citizens of the state. While yes, more money is available to pay for services, there is also less money that people can spend on what they need.
