Illinois Has No Budget, So Where Do State Tax Dollars Go, Anyway?

Released Monday, 11th April 2016
Good episode? Give it some love!
The answers are crazy. We’ll have fun looking. But you’ll probably be pretty mad by the end. Things are worse than you thought.

The bad news:
We’re paying out billions more than we take in. Just without setting priorities.
The state comptroller — who makes the payments — calls it “ad hoc” and “ridiculous.”

The worse news: We’re still letting billions of dollars in services go totally unfunded.

And: We’re breaking the non-profits that provide those services.

Full story, complete with charts.
