I really must protest your allegation of "fudging numbers". What is being fudged is how red or blue is determined, and who in fact runs the particular state. Here is another link; http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/09/the_myth_o...

Thanks for the explanation, CoolEdge. I'm not sure how any primary voter's intent (regarding who they might plan on voting for in the general election) could be verified... but your points are well taken. Especially as it relates to the pork-barrel spending.

Thanks, BG. I figured from the video that the security guy was probably completely full of it, from his ridiculous "I'm not dealin with it today!" remark. I would be interested to see if he is disciplined (or charged with anything) for his behavior.... but that will never happen.

the fliers said the tea party guy was trying to keep black people from voting. The other problem is they showed 1000's had already voted in the other primary so were no eligible. And the law says they have to intend to vote for that candidate in the general, not just cross over to elect the weaker candidate. Cochran is a big porker, bringing back like three times what MS pays in. Certainly…

I bet Quinn learned this from Dick Durbin - another INTIMIDATOR.

Mandatory IRA bill passes Illinois Senate

3 months ago by Bob Gough

Bill would force employers to set up IRA's and automatically deduct 3 percent from employees' checks

A bill has passed in the Illinois Senate that would force employers to establish Individual Retirement Accounts for their employees

SB 2758,  passed Wednesday by a 30-22-2. Sen. John Sullivan (D-Rushville) was one of the two present votes. 

The Bill mandates employers set up an automatic Individual Retirement Account for their employees, a system to be administered by the Illinois Dept. of Revenue and a newly created Board led by the Illinois Treasurer.  The legislation targets small businesses with 25 or more employees and forces them to not only set up the accounts but also automatically deduct at least 3% from their employees’ paychecks. 

An employee would have to actively pursue “opting out” if they did not want to participate. The bill doesn't force employers to match their employee contributions

The measure now moves to the Illinois House.

The bill is dubbed the The Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program and is supported by AARP Illinois, Illinois Asset Building Group, Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law, Woodstock Institute, Heartland Alliance, SEIU Illinois/Indiana and over 45 other businesses, associations and advocacy groups.

@eyokley If Hillary doesn't run, there's a huge void and Nixon will have appeal. If she does, he has to be on the VP short list. #AmIWrong
