Speaker Madigan: Gov. Rauner Must Make Budget First Priority

  • Wolfy

    If the governor and Madigan allow our bonds to slip into junk, they should be criminally prosecuted.

    For sure Mike, just like you have done over the last 40 + years. O’ wait that right? Illinois has not had a balanced budget in decades, the worst funded pension system in the country, is now over $14.5 billion behind on paying it’s bills, has a credit rating just above junk, owes over $300 billion dollars (debt and liabilities) and has among the highest property taxes in the country. Us Illinois residents owe you such a huge level of thanks for your incredible leadership!
