Take Your Jobs to New Jersey

Illinois has been taking a lot of fairly justifiable guff about the state legislature's recent decision to raise the individual and corporate income tax rates. Wisconsin and Indiana have been running ads encouraging Illinois businesses to pull up stakes and go.

I was, however, surprised to hear a radio commercial with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie encouraging Illinois businesses to move to his state.

When New Jersey is touting a more favorable business climate than the one in your state, then you know your state is in trouble.

*sigh*
