Illinois Clones?
« on: June 22, 2017, 07:39:20 am »
I'm an Illinois native.
Born there and lived most of the first 35 years of my life there.

You may be aware that the state is broke.
Massive future financial obligations which can not possibly be met.
In financial crisis m0de now.

Seems the've kicked the can down the road as far as it can be kicked.
Time to -----> pay up.

Shake down.

The Chicago Tribune came out with a piece saying that the state situation is FUBAR.
They show a paln to have the state dissolved and absorbed by surrounding states.

Well, they'd score the Bulls, Cubs, Sox, Bears, and Hawks.

Not a bad haul.

Lived about 30 miles west of Peoria until last year, when CAT decided to lay a bunch of us off and move our division to Chicago. Probably one of the best things to happen to me was getting my ass out of that shit hole.

"From Horrific To Catastrophic": Court Ruling Sends Illinois Into Financial Abyss

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-01/horrific-catastrophic-court-ruling-send-illinois-financial-abyss


However, in a "shocking" development, just hours remaining before the midnight deadline to pass the Illinois budget, and Illinois' imminent loss of its investment grade rating, federal judge Joan Lefkow in Chicago ordered Illinois to come up with hundreds of millions of dollars it owes in Medicaid payments that state officials say the government doesn’t have, the Chicago Tribune reported. Judge Lefkow ordered the state to make $586 million in monthly payments (from the current $160 million) as well as another $2 billion toward a $3 billion backlog of payments - a $167 million increase in monthly outlays - the state owes to managed care organizations that process payments to providers.

While it is no secret that as part of its collapse into the financial abyss, Illinois has accumulated $15 billion in unpaid bills, the state's Medicaid recipients had had enough, and went to court asking a judge to order the state to speed up its payments. On Friday, the court ruled in their favor. The problem, of course, is that Illinois can no more afford to pay the outstanding Medicaid bills, than it can to pay any of its $14,711,351,943.90 in overdue bills as of June 30.






The backlog of unpaid claims the state owes to managed-care companies directly, as well as to the doctors, hospitals, clinics and other organizations “is crippling these providers and thereby dramatically reducing the Medicaid recipients’ access to health care,” Lefkow said in her ruling (attached below).

Friday’s court ruling, which meant that the near-insolvent state must pay an additional $593 million per month, may have been the straw that finally broke the Illinois camel's back.

Friday’s ruling by the U.S. District Court takes the state’s finances from horrific to catastrophic,” Comptroller Susana Mendoza, a Democrat, said in an emailed statement after the ruling.
