How's Illinois Doing Compared to Other States

What is the current status of the State of Illinois? If you were to believe some of our elected officials who continually message a dire story, you would say "DEAD". But, I believe otherwise of our state. There is evidence to indicate that our state is actually in a much better economic position than is usually stated and the future holds much promise, provided we do NOT adopt the Turn Around Agenda of Governor Rauner!

A recent article of the 24/7 Wall Street' paints a much different picture of where our State actually stands. The article uses different metrics to measure and rank the states. The author(s) used the U.S. Census Bureau's 2014 American Community Survey (ACS) data to determine the median incomes within the fifty states and used other economic indicators such as health insurance availability, employment, poverty ...etc to determine the rankings.
