31,796 of them went to Indiana.

Pretty bad for Illinois with them being the only midwest State losing people like that.

Assuming that number counts births, Illinois lost even more people than that number.

That’s it? I read somewhere that the projection was 100,000 people in a 4 year period (last census) and of course people were blaming Rauner for it.

I honestly don't even like driving through IL anymore to get to it's neighboring states. So much stupid on the roads there. People, perpetual construction, tolls, garbage...

Yeah maybe. But the number they DIDN'T count was all the Illegals pouring into the 'Sanctuary City'.

I bet the number is +50,000 in reality.

I punched out this year too. Buh-Bye!

Guys no worries. This was Rauner's doing. Now we have JB and a Democratic supermajority. Things are on the right track and will be getting fixed!

just hope folks leaving remember why they left Illinois on election day.

I'm concerned about our property values taking a massive shit in coming years. All the baby boomers are retiring and leaving in droves, how could anyone retire here? Its not just the weather. You didn't bust ass your entire life to keep paying ridiculous taxes to an out of control dumpster fire state.

I wish I could leave too, hoping my wife's job gets relocated to Arkansas and then we are GONE :fingerx:

A couple of things have to be taken into account.

IL has the largest population in the Midwest. 45k of over 12 mil is very low %



The neighboring states grew by 117k. If 45k left IL, where did the other people come from? I am sure people came to IL also. So does that mean even more left but incoming offset the number?

For the record, I was offered a job in Kentucky and turned it down because I didn’t want to be away from my son and family. At the end of the day, it wasn’t about the money for me.

The only people blaming Governor Rauner for any of this are too stupid to take seriously, and way too stupid to even try debating with.
You think PRESIDENT Trump had trouble draining the swamp from both parties,
can you imagine the meetings Governor Rauner had to sit through with that POS madigan!!!!!

madigans plan was to destroy Governor Rauners good name, and he did it perfectly.
No changes were made, the only tiny victory he even got was a Supreme Court ruling that IIRC he paid the legal fee's for out of his own pocket??

This state is a crap hole, it will always be a crap hole until Chicago is purged from the face of the planet.
They spend millions of dollars on idiotic over passes downtown & the ghetto, that there is absolutely no need for, especially at the criminal union prices they pay!!!

When you are that broke, have no growth potential, and long term contracts that you have no way in hell of paying for,
you don't go build these idiotic beautification projects!!!!
If the train station didn't collapse onto the tracks, you don't frigging rebuild it!!!

None of these clueless POS liberal leeches have a clue how to run a business.
If they did at one time, they forget immediately when it's not their dough being pissed away!!!

The place is a perfect example of the future of our "ONCE" great nation.
People too stupid to sacrifice for the good of the city, state, country.
All they care about is GIMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE.
welfare whores & union blackmailers, where's my free stuff I didn't earn or deserve, as long as the guy in the bracket above pays for every thing!!!

If it doesn't make you sick every time you see the deficit posted, welfare whores living it up, an unnecessary union project at quadruple the price, you are a leech and when your city, state, country collapses on your children & grandchildren, you caused it 100%!!!!!!!!!!
