Where's the moolah?

One simple question for the officials of Illinois... why is there a school budget crisis going on?
Where is all of that money from the proceeds of the Illinois State Lottery and, in particular, the money from the Lotto drawings that was supposed to be going to the Illinois School System?
If memory serves correct, the state of Illinois instituted the lottery in 1974 and roughly ten years later the Lotto drawings started, with proceeds going to finance schools throughout the system.
Show me the money!
Because I would like to know...
Wha' happened?
Why is there a budget crisis?
Does anyone have any answers?
We, the good (TAX PAYING) citizens of ILLINOIS would like to know!
But in the meantime, we will not be holding our breath.
That could cause health problems if prolonged and we do not even want to go there again.
If anyone (and I mean anyone) has an answer to these questions, please reply because I may have missed something over the past 35 plus years regarding this matter.
In the meantime, where's the moolah?
We demand answers!

  1. I've been asking that same question for years. Sounds like the lottery has turned into an Illinois hedge fund. The people of Illinois have been duped. I guess that shouldn't come as a surprise. We should be used to crooked politics and thievery by now.
