Quinn’s new government-made video, available at thisismyIllinois.com, shows an actor describing the state’s “pension squeeze,” while a cartoon python constricts the state’s capitol, schools, a cop and a hospital.

“Sometimes the employer is a private company, but more often, nowadays, the employer is a government body,” says narrator, who blames inadequate savings, Wall Street, bad investments, earlier retirements, and extended lifespans for the shortfall.

He doesn’t, however, blame Democratic politicians and unions for jacking up pension payments while short-funding the investment accounts.

The pleasant, low-budget and reassuring video has a few glitches. For example, it shows a 1950s-era Soviet-built A-2 aircraft crop-spreader aircraft, but suggests it was an American World War I aircraft.
There's a video at the link of "Squeezy" The Python, i live here, i can't bear to watch it.
