If you think your credit rating is bad, well at least it’s not as bad as the state of Illinois!
Moody Investors Services says that if a budget isn’t reached by the politicians in Springfield by the end of the Spring session, they may lower the state’s credit rating.

Well, to put it the way Crain’s Chicago Business did, right now the state has a pile of IOU’s of about 13 billion.
Yes BILLIONS with a B!
Lets be honest, it’s been two years since there’s even been a budget, so why would anyone think something will happen before the end of may?

No word on whether he’ll get it or not.
