Quinn's Amazing Budget
You think this jackass just won an election and doesn't really care about the next four years?
- Gov. Pat Quinn today stressed the need for spending restraint during his annual budget speech today, but largely glossed over the details, instead focusing on voter-friendly ways to boost the economy and create jobs.
- The speech comes just weeks after Quinn won an income-tax increase to help stabilize the state's troubled finances, and includes $1.7 billion more in spending than last year, a point that drew sharp criticism from Republicans.
What the fuck??? Illinois' debt isn't going to come under control when Quinn is increasing spending by $1.7 billion over last year. It's basic economics. All the smoke is blowing away and the mirrors are cracked. The tax increases are going to remain permanent, businesses are going to flee the state and Illinois will join the rest of the rust belt as shadows of their former selves. This is what passes for leadership in Illinois.
