This could probably have been avoided if the people of Illinois had made it clear to the state legislators that rather than have any more taxes it would be OK with them if the state did away with school funding, or maybe any and all health care funding.
Oh hey, even better, close the prisons, who needs those anyhow!
Illinois has a beautiful capitol building and complex, maybe they could just sell it and run the state from a bunch of laptops at Starbucks.
That would save some money.
