To writer Cinda Klickna, you are so wrong. Gov. Rauner is trying to get it where union people won’t have to pay dues if they don’t want to belong to a union. As of now they have to pay dues regardless.
Like most Democrats you want to complain about the job Rauner is doing. Well with the mess he was left, he is doing what he can. It would be nice if the Democrats would get off their butts and do something now. Democrats are claiming that the governor is holding the budget hostage. But no, it’s Mike Madigan and other Democrats who are doing that. Bruce is willing to give them what they want with the tax hike, so why can’t Mike and the Democrats give a little.
Democrats claim that the governor’s agenda will hurt the middle class. Well with Democrats not working with the governor they are hurting the middle class just as much. Also, all Democrats went home for all of last month. All Republicans were willing to stay to get things worked out. If they were really interested in getting things done, they would have stayed regardless of spring break. People want to blame someone, start with the two top Democrats, Mike Madigan and John Cullerton.
However if all the Democrats out there want to go deeper in debt, then by all means let Mike and John keep things going the way they have for the past 10 to 20 years and see how we do.
Never miss a local story.
