Illinois is far and away in worse shape than any state in the country. On the financial side, Illinois has a state blinding spending at a rate that far outpaces what it's taking. According to the disclosure statement, Illinois' net cumulative deficit "Governmental Activities" rose an additional $1.2 billion in the fiscal year ended June 30, to $47.8 billion.
