Educating graphs on IL education

In this graph, the amount of money going to retirement benefits begins to look like Pacman, eating the ghost of Illinois’ future.

Tom Elia has more.

Clearly, legislators — if they are serious — are going to have to find a way to prevent retirement benefits from eating all available resources. Whether they can get serious, or even want to, is the real question. I suspect that if anyone in Illinois tries to get a handle on this looming and outsized bill coming due, they will be subjected to the same thuggery and hysteria we have seen play out in Wisconsin this past year.

UPDATE: Instapundit links!, thanks, Glenn Reynolds!
