Biden says more stupid stuff then ANY other person alive. Yet everyone shrugs it off as "Joe being Joe". He's so stupid it is expected. he is the "Funny Uncle" that says and does stupid things and it is OK becuase it is expected. They call them Bidenisms, Google it

I'd take Biden any day over someone who says things so ridiculous that when satire sites like National Report does an article stating she was on Fox News saying that Mexicans need to get on the boat they came in on and go back home, it sounds 100% believable.

Illinois government’s deficit at $45 billion

10 months, 2 weeks ago by The Associated Press

Shortfall grew by less than 1 percent from the previous year

An annual state report puts the Illinois deficit at nearly $45 billion.
Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka released the report Wednesday. She says the shortfall grew by less than 1 percent from the previous year. She says the growth in liabilities was mostly because of obligations to state pension systems and other post-employment benefits.
The state has a $100 billion shortfall in its five pension systems. But Topinka’s office says the accounting method used in this report measures only what should have been set aside to keep pace with obligations — not the total debt.
Lawmakers and Gov. Pat Quinn adopted a plan last fall to reduce that debt over 30 years, but it has been challenged in court.
The general spending account deficit fell 19 percent to $7.3 billion.
