Democrat Gov. JB Pritzker is running for reelection in Illinois, but as residents look to Election Day, the Land of Lincoln has now been tagged as having the worst unemployment rate in the U.S.A. Good going, Democrats.

As Wirepoints notes, Illinois already has the WORST pension bomb problem, some of the highest property taxes in the country, and a budget billions out of whack, and now it can’t even employ is benighted citizens!

At 4.5 percent in September, no other state has a higher unemployment rate than Illinois, according to the latest U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics release.

Illinoisans have been suffering in one the worst five states for unemployment for several months, but now the state has jumped to the number one position. This is what comes from pursuing policies that drive out companies like Boeing, Citadel, Caterpillar and Tyson.

… and …

Nothing state officials say can change the fact that Illinois is an extreme laggard both regionally and nationally when it comes to creating jobs.

Nor does it change the fact that Illinoisans are now poised to suffer the most during the next economic downturn. Bloomberg says there’s a 100% probability of a recession within the next 12 months and Illinois’ jobs climate is now the worst-positioned to deal with the impact.

All of Illinois’ neighboring states are in far better shape. Their unemployment rates are significantly below those in Illinois, most notably in Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa and Missouri, where unemployment is 1 to 2 percentage points lower.

What a joke Illinois is…

I hope Illinoisans get out and vote and get rid of this useless, obese billionaire who has done nothing but damage the once great state.

But it is likely he’ll win reelection by 10 points or more.
