Recently Gene Robke blamed Illinois’ financial woes on the bad policies of Bush and Reagan. Keep in mind, that Reagan was president 35 years ago. If you are going to blame Reagan, it would make just as much sense to blame Eisenhower as well.
Now that Robke “apparently” has found the reason for Illinois financial crisis, what “intelligent Democratic solutions” does he suggest his Democrats take to solve the crisis? Just simply writing GOP blame letters for the past two decades hasn’t eased the Illinois financial crisis.
In conclusion, I would like to say that blaming everybody but yourself isn’t going to solve the Illinois financial crisis, it is however, the easy way out — not the intelligent way. As long as people don’t accept responsibility, Illinois will continue to be on financial life support and the mountain of debt will continue to rise dramatically. Can you imagine, if the other 49 states had been affected by the “bad Bush/Reagan policies like Illinois.”
When someone has to go back over 30 years to find a Republican to blame for Illinois financial woes, that is desperate. The real answer to this problem is “intelligent Democratic solutions” of which I haven’t seen any as of yet, not just “Republican blame” on which Gene writes often.
