Illinoisans of all ages are suffering across the state due to the depleted state services, and communities are hurting due to increased unemployment as many social service providers have been forced to lay workers off, reduce hours, or shut down altogether. Elected officials need to stop putting politics above the needs of their constituents. Illinoisans have elected legislators to properly manage the stateâ€™s finances, and itâ€™s their job to create a comprehensive, balanced budget that aims to make life better for all.
