Blago BS Getting Deep
But Blago is really getting goofy, saying his budget that provides for the largest tax hikes in Illinois history puts him on the side of the Lord? From Channel 2:
- The governor says he has heavenly help as he pushes for the largest increase in taxes and spending in the history of Illinois.
As CBS 2 Political Editor Mike Flannery reports, Gov. Rod Blagojevich says he is "on the side of the Lord."
The governor called his campaign a "crusade," declaring that, as he sees it, he is on the side of God in offering Illinoisans more access to medical insurance and better schools.
And Channel 7 has more:
"We salute this budget proposal that is hitting deep pockets and we are saying to Corporate America, if you don't support the plan, we will take to the streets and we know how," said Rev. Janette Wilson, Ministers Alliance.
Dozens of Chicago-area ministers are threatening boycotts and demonstrations if that's what it takes to convince corporations and lawmakers to support Governor Blagojevich's plan for a new tax on business revenues to raise $6 billion a year for schools and health care.
