The renovations at the Illinois Capitol are yet another example of the entitlement culture of our political (and business) elite. "We're special. We deserve it." As long as someone else is paying the bill (and nobody finds out) nothing is too good.
As far as I'm concerned, when elections arrive, all current incumbents, state, federal and local, can wave goodbye to their perks and positions. I'm not voting for a single incumbent, anywhere, for any position and I'm encouraging other voters to follow my lead.
There's term limits for you.
