To begin with, let’s remind House Speaker Michael Madigan and his cohorts that the definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing over and over, while expecting different results. How in the world can he justify proposing a budget this year that is $4 billion out of balance.
Mr. Madigan and his fellow Democrats have controlled the state legislature for the past several years and, to their credit, have continued to mount debt on top of debt every year. Evidently they don’t have the backbone to support the hard decisions that our newly elected governor has proposed (and which are sorely needed) for trimming the Illinois budget.
very Illinois resident should be voicing their support for Gov. Bruce Rauner’s bold proposals versus the alternative of having everyone’s taxes jacked up to cover the ineptitude of the past several years by our elected officials.
