DAILYKENN.com -- It seems that sane residents of Illinois are suffering from Chicago fatigue. Republican lawmakers in that state have proposed a resolution that recommends making the Windy City it's own state.
The proposal makes sense. Why should the state's taxpayers be burdened with underwriting the blunders of Chicago's failed Democratic Party policies?
What's more, the city's 2.7-million residents comprise a disproportionate number of the state's 12.7 people.
An added bonus is the move would likely send two additional Republicans to the U.S. Senate.

A group of Republican members of the state legislature have signed on to a resolution that would urge the U.S. Congress to separate the city from Illinois and make it its own state.
Speaking with the State Journal-Register, Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer said the resolution is a way to "spark discussion." And it has.
"It's more of a frustration of the policies than the true belief that Chicago and Illinois would be better off as separate states," Davidsmeyer told the paper. But he said he doesn't really think the separation is a solution, adding that "our relationship is mutually beneficial."
