The one state that has not dared to touch the unions has the lowest debt rating out of any state in the country, owes it's vendors $5 billion in unpaid payments for their services, has a $7 billion dollar deficit, and has over $90 billion in unfunded pension liabilities. This state is Illinois. The opposite is their neighbor to the north who has a $300 million dollar surplus and the only fully funded pension system in the country. This state is Wisconsin. At least some states are willing to make the tough decisions.
