Gene Robke again rails against the Republicans as the root of all evil. They and the federal government are the direct cause of the Illinois budget issue. I ask Mr. Robke, if you suffer a loss of some income, is it your responsibility to adjust your spending accordingly, or is it all your “providers” fault for your overspending?
Our current leadership in the Illinois Senate doesn’t lead. They rule that body by fear mongering. If they truly lead, they wouldn’t have knowingly passed a budget that was $4,000,000,000.
If I did that, it wouldn’t be long until I was living on the street. No, wait a minute. I am sure my illustrious elected representatives would save me.
