Nice State

  • INDIANAPOLIS — State government spent $100.4 million less than it took in during the 2018 budget year that ended June 30, even after Gov. Eric Holcomb funneled $327.1 million in additional funds to the Department of Child Services.

    Data released Thursday by State Auditor Tera Klutz shows Indiana collected $15.8 billion in taxes and fees over the past 12 months, and spent $15.7 billion providing services to the state's 6.6 million residents.

    "As the state's chief financial officer, I am pleased to report that Indiana remains financially strong," said Klutz, a Republican.

    Adding in the 2018 budget surplus, Indiana now has an ongoing budget reserve of nearly $1.8 billion, or 11.3 percent of annual spending.
Amazing how success is located so close to total catastrophic failure.

Don’t expect this from Illinois law makers. They wonder why no one wants to live here. More tax increases on the way for Chicago.

Amazing how the absence of a totally crooked democrat controlled county, with matching democrat controlled city, plus the mass of crooked state level democrat cunts from the aforementioned, which = substantially honest government, can produce such a difference.

Alas, being that the slaughtering of cunt politicians remains, to this very moment, thoroughly unlawful, the cure for our disease shows no sign of appearing anytime soon.

I hope the "Move to Indy" guy doesn't find this blog!

They have their issues but they don't have Machine Corruption like we have it. They don't have layers of unnecessary government and patronage hires or nepotism like we have it.

>>>>> Indiana government earned the top ranking due largely to its budget stability, spending transparency and use of technology to make state data widely available — three policies that new Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb said he plans to maintain. ~~para~~ In contrast, Illinois government ranked 47th for effectiveness, mostly as a result of the state's worst-in-the-nation budget mess. <<<<<

Bwaaahahaha! Come on Madigan, make us 50th. We know you can do it.
{ I had a feeling that Illinois would get a mention. }

Further down in the article some Indiana Democrat Pols are quoted. You'll be surprised to learn that they're not too happy with their state's fiscal responsibility. They want to SPEND ALL THE MONEY on 'programs'.

F--king democrats are the same all over. Fiscal Illiterates.

ps: I bet going through their Personal Checking Accounts would be hilarious. They can't figure out why they're overdrawn as they still have Checks left. LOL

Really asshat;
If you qualify for an unreduced benefit, you will receive a monthly payment that equals at least 50 percent of the base salary (first-class salary) the year you retire.

If you earn more than 20 years of service, you will receive another 1 percent of the base salary for each six months of active service over 20 years. The most you can receive is 12 years (or a maximum 24 percent of the base salary).

For example: If you retire with exactly 20 years of service, your benefit at retirement will be 50 percent of the base salary for your department. If you retire with 30 years of service, your benefit will be 70 percent of the base salary (1 percent every six months for an additional 10 years equals 20 percent). When you earn 32 years of service or more, your benefit at retirement will be 74 percent of the base salary of your department.

Ax’ commonsense law advocate, social activist Super-Sharp Special Ed and he’ll tell you the only reason for surplus revenue is that the illegal gun imports and fireworks keep crossing over.

No surprise if Welcoming Sanctuary City IL is a paying a good portion of Indiana and Wisconsin’s welfare entitlement supplements.
