Lawmakers have priorities totally wrong

The state of Illinois has been gifting while it’s broke. Illinois gave DePaul University $100 million for a new gym. Yet, lawmakers refuse to pay back wages owed to state employees.

This isn’t the only example of money given away. Besides DePaul being a private school, it’s one of the best-funded schools in the nation. They, the lawmakers, haven’t paid into an employee pension fund as promised for years.

Now they want the employees to pay the debt they’ve created.

They get lifetime benefits with added boosts for minimum service. But that’s OK. And like many other governing bodies, they are more concerned with political parties, instead of the people they represent.

Thank you for your time.
