It’s all about trust, or lack thereof
Tuesday, Jan 26, 2016
That’s true. The governor got way out over his skis and described an agreement he never made with Senate President Cullerton, and because there was such a lack of trust, Cullerton thought Rauner had reneged on the deal.
That’s exactly right.
* The Tribune editorial badly bungled the setup…
Total malarkey. Rauner described a deal that didn’t exist. He then tossed in the verbal grenades, which only made it worse.
But the Trib did get this part mostly right…
That’s true, no matter if the actual proposal is constitutional or not. So, save your comments on that topic. It’s not really that important. The courts will decide one way or another.
* The goal here is to get everybody pulling in the same direction. That hasn’t happened in a very long time. Rauner just about blew it, but he recovered.
We’ll see if the governor can continue this momentum during his State of the State Address tomorrow. Stay tuned.
