A glimpse of America’s future in the hands of the Chicago machine

And it looks like what we will all end up with from the collectivists and their plan to “help” us all, is more of this:

The state of Illinois has reached a new level of broke. Come Monday, it won’t have enough cash to bury its indigent dead. Illinois officials sent a letter to more than 600 funeral directors around the state to let them know there’s no money for funerals for individuals on public assistance.

“We got that letter,” said Jonathon Szykowny, owner and director of Szykowny Funeral Home. “I’m extremely upset by it. … I would be very concerned that during extreme economic times that some families can’t provide the necessary funds to bury their loved ones. Sometimes God doesn’t call during the best economic times and families can’t afford to pay for a funeral and need help”

In the past, the state has reserved about $13 million to help pay for an estimated 12,000 funerals for individuals who relied on public aid. Participating funeral homes were alloted $1,100 for funerals and $552 for the burial.

The 2011 budget, however, accounts for just $1.9 million. The Illinois Department of Human Services letter said it can only guarantee payments for pauper funerals through August 15.

We are not taking enough money from the evil rich! And maybe what we should do is turn these dead people into food. Soilent Green anyone?

Here is some prospective: When big government attacks, the shit stinks. That’s what Obamacare will look like too. Can we admit that the socialists talk nice but can’t do anything right, and not just because they are incompetent and unrealistic, but because they simply refuse to work within the bounds of reality? There is not enough “other people’s money” for them to do what they want. That’s a fact.

    Didn’t Ill. just raise a buttload of taxes? I thought making the rich pay their “fair share” was the road to dreams for all?
