Officials at the Illinois Policy Institute aren’t buying the hype around President Obama’s economic plan.  Vice President of Policy, Ted Dabrowski, says if the president wants to see how his plan will look like, all he needs to do is look at Illinois, where Democrats have been in charge for at least a decade.  

Dabrowski says Obama's plan mirrors that of Illinois politicians and if it comes to fruition, the nation will soon find itself in the same situation that Illinois is in right now.

Dabrowski comments

He says Illinois is in bad shape with the worst funded pension system in the nation, the second highest unemployment rate in the nation, and its adding millions of people to the welfare system every year.
