Pritzker unveils five-year economic plan for Illinois

Figures he will be out of prison by then.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - Gov. J.B. Pritzker has released a five-year economic plan for Illinois that builds on the state's strongest sectors such as agriculture, health care, crime and transportation.

The Democrat's "Plan to Revitalize the Illinois Economy and Build the Workforce of the Future" was released Wednesday. Pritzker says he wants "to bring prosperity and opportunity to every corner of Illinois."

The plan's goals include building long-term growth through exports, startups, research and development and more. It also aims to invest in women, racial minorities, convicts, rural residents and others to close the "equity gap," and sets sights on creating and retaining jobs.

Pritzker identifies "concentrated industry clusters" which he says are ripe for expansion. They include farming, energy, information technology, health care, corrections, manufacturing and transportation.

    To quote former Governor Rauner regarding Pritzker, "you never had a legitimate job in your life"

    Notice how Dems always talk about "equity gap" or income inequality, they believe in equal outcome vs equal opportunity. We all have different skills and levels of drive yet the left has difficulty accepting that.
    I can't shoot a basketball into the net at 50 ft nor catch a football on the run yet should I receive millions a year like a professional athlete? I studied hard in school and give my employer an honest days work. Should a person who never graduated past the eighth grade, can't make it to work on a regular basis if at all and smokes weed most of the day enjoy the same things that my hard earned wages provide me. I say not but democrats have no problem taking from those who earned and giving it to those who do nothing other than vote for a living.
