Squeezy the Pension Python
- After months of promising a major grass-roots effort to win public support for reforming the state's government worker pension system, Gov. Pat Quinn on Sunday unveiled a plan that featured an incomplete online strategy, children wearing red plastic megaphones and an animated "Squeezy the Pension Python" mascot.
There were, however, no solutions offered on how to fix the nation's most underfunded retirement system.
We'll tell you exactly what the solution is going to be - screw everyone and let the feds sort it out.
And the blatant use of kids for this debacle? Kind of appropriate in a sick way seeing as how not a single Illinois politician is acting anything like an adult during this entire crisis.
Someone let us know when the grown-ups finally arrive.
