Rauner and his ego attempt to destroy Illinois

It's all about him
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A $36.5 billion plan to rebuild Illinois' crumbling finances passed a critical test on Friday, but a powerful legislative leader said no deal would be reached before a midnight deadline - meaning Illinois will enter its third consecutive fiscal year without a budget.
And it means entering dangerous territory: The state comptroller will be unable to cover basic services ordered by courts, road construction and Powerball ticket sales could halt, and the state's credit rating could be downgraded to "junk."

Until all of these Ponzis' are allowed to collapse of their own weight nothing will change. It doesn't matter if it's Illinois, California, Connecticut, or Kentucky. The pain now will be bad make no mistake. But it will be much worse if this can is just kicked further and further down the road.

Rauner isn't causing this. He inherited it. Blame goes to madigan and his ilk.

Good lord man you have got to be kidding or a Democratic hack if you think Rauner created this problem. How many years has the democratic legislature been kicking the can down the road, how many years have democrats been buying votes with other peoples money? Well they just ran out of the other guys money.

Christine Radogno just resigned because she - as a Republican - has zero power in this Democrat controlled state. The Demonrats are just completely unwilling to compromise - they see political points to be gained by sitting back, doing nothing, and then letting Rauner take the blame. These Cadillac pensions, and lifetime political hack operatives have gamed the system. The media is going to be the shield for the Demonrats and let them tag Rauner with the blame. What a joke. Look at the newer post about Taxwinkle. She is ALREADY ramping up replacement taxes for the "soda tax". That newer post blows away they argument that Rauner is to blame. The Democrats control virtually everything in this State and Madigan runs the Democrats, because several thousand Democrat hack union supporters live in his district and put him into office....Millions voted for Rauner - a Republican in a Democrat state. In two years you will all get your way and we will have liberal Democrat "Governer [ fill in the blank ]" and we will somehow be better off ??

Says a Democrat with a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. Maybe your job or pension or your ridiculous wage hikes or Cadillac health plans may be somewhat in jeopardy. Rauner is not the King of Illinois and ALL Democrats have been told (ordered) to oppose him even when they are getting most and almost all that they want. It is political to oppose him blame him and let the media cover it up. Not buying it. Not buying what you and your leftist socialist Union leaders are selling. Madigan failed to lead - ON PURPOSE
