(KFTK) – "In his State of the State speech, he (JB Pritzker) way-overplayed how well the Illinois economy is doing," says Adam Schuseter of the Illinois economy "we're gowing jobs at half the rate of the rest of the country."

Schuster says the Illinois governor and the Illinois Policy Institute don't see eye-to-eye on tax policy, but they were happy to hear about Pritzker's focus on corruption.

"If Washington needs to drain the swamp, we've practically got a landfill down in Springfield of corruption," says Schuster, "we're the most corrupt state in the nation."
