    The state of Illinois owes my wife's small private medical practice about $7000. One claim -- filed last August -- is the oldest awaiting payment. I called the insurance company and the representative indicated the the state is now paying claims from last July. She indicated that it will likely be 6-8 more weeks before payment arrives.

    But according to Governor Quinn, Illinois is a business friendly state.

    If you believe that one, I've got some dry land in south Florida I'll sell you really cheap.
