Or take your losses and move out West

Bob Williams, president of State Budget Solutions:"If you're a taxpayer in the State of Illinois, you need to demand that the Legislature go along with the governor and do pension reform," Williams said. "I mean, it's totally unsustainable. What's even worse than the State of Illinois is the City of Chicago and the public schools. The public schools are in a disaster right now, and nearly 90 cents out of every dollar in the increase in taxes over the last few years has gone to pensions rather than the schools."
Taxpayers in Detroit decided that walking away was cheaper than dealing with politicians. Same in Stockton, San Bernardino, and a few other places.  We call it the HardFork, it is mostly the best thing to do.
