    –ILSenateGOP@ILSenateGOP
    Munger: To get out of current backlog of bills, taxes would need to be raised by 8%.–

    Sigh.

    If you’re so obviously challenged by the language and arithmetic that you post something so ludicrous for all the world to see, perhaps you shouldn’t, especially if you’re speaking for lawmakers who are supposed to know what the heck they’re doing and talking about.

    If raising taxes BY 8% did the trick, there really wouldn’t be much of a beef, would there?

    I suspect Munger said raising the personal income tax rate TO 8%.

    BY and TO mean very different things, in this context.

    Raising the personal income tax rate TO 8% would increase the current rate BY more than 100%.

    Little words, big differences. Learn, think, edit or don’t hit “send.”

    Please do not encourage another campaign by Quinn.


  3. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 9:11 am:

    ===Please do not encourage===

    It’s not like he needs any.

    Also, I’m not running that poll because he refuses to disclose the name of the pollster. And, it’s apparently completely automated, which likely means no mobile phone calls. If there were, they weren’t disclosed in the article.

    No way am I running that.


  4. - RNUG - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 9:27 am:

    Going to be too busy to follow things but today should be interesting. I look forward to reviewing all the political maneuvering later tonight.


  5. - chewy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 12:54 pm:

    somebody needs to bring vote for sb580 back to table so we can keep the community safe from prison and mental health facilitys.


  6. - Randy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 1:44 pm:

    Excomm in 118, not 114.


  7. - Norseman - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 2:56 pm:

    Looks like the GOP is doing a better job of filling in candidate vacancies than the Dems. Vote accordingly for a lot of folks will have to focus on Munger, Kirk and GOP Cong.

    ==Senator Manar: “Why wait until July 1st to open the doors? Why wait another 30 days?”==

    Maybe its because there is no budget for FY16 to fund it.


  9. - BBG Watch - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 4:26 pm:

    ==Senator Manar: “Why wait until July 1st to open the doors? Why wait another 30 days?”

    Maybe its because there is no budget for FY16 to fund it. ==

    Because it has to go through JCAR for approval.


  10. - Mama - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 4:46 pm:

    ==UnitedHealthcare to pull out of Illinois insurance exchange ==

    Will the pull out of Illinois insurance exchange affect state retirees who have UnitedHealthcare Advantage ins.?


  11. - Mama - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 5:07 pm:

    Income tax has to be raised no matter whose budget is passed. Rauner and company knows this!


  12. - Outsider - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 5:08 pm:

    From the United Health press release … The change does not affect the company’s group insurance business or Medicare plans.


  13. - Mama - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 5:09 pm:

    “Guv: We need to give teachers, school children, university, health care, social service and prison systems what they need.”

    If you believe that, pass Madigan’s budget plus a tax bill to cover pay for it.


  14. - Nick Name - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 5:09 pm:

    Seven hours left in the regular session, and Rauner and the GOP leadership have nothing better to do than dump nukes on Madigan. O.o

    Unbelievable.


  15. - Dandy Edward - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 5:30 pm:

    Mike Madigan and John Cullerton need to tell us how we will pay for their underfunded $7 billion dollar budget. They both created this mess long befor Rauner became Gov. Gov. Rauner has said he will work with them to come to an agreement. The problem is Mike Madigan and John Cullerton do not care about the middle class. Mike and John will not propose any tax solutions since that have none. Rauner has said if he gets TA he willing to consider a service tax and an increase in the state income tax rate.


  16. - BBG Watch - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 5:31 pm:

    Amazing. Rauner. Radogno. Durkin. They’ve been slinging garbage and now they’re in a panic because kids might not go back to school in August. smh


  17. - wordslinger - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 6:30 pm:

    –Mike and John will not propose any tax solutions since that have none. Rauner has said if he gets TA he willing to consider a service tax and an increase in the state income tax rate.–

    For crying out loud, can you make a minimal effort to be coherent, if you have something to say?


  18. - Grandson of Man - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 8:07 pm:

    Not one Republican who wrote the letter to Rauner urging a resumption of AFSCME contract negotiations and compromise stood up for their constituents. Not one.

    Take note, union members, and vote accordingly. The days of union support by Republicans are over. If this doesn’t say it, nothing will.


  19. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 8:15 pm:

    The Letter Sham resulted in lots of “Red” on HB580.

    Vote Accordingly, all of Labor


  20. - Joe Blow - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 8:39 pm:

    If Rauner wants a balanced budget let’s see his plan that would have to cut 7.5 billion out of the Dems budget proposal.


  21. - Mama - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 9:23 pm:

    No appropriation for higher ed, again?


  22. - Nick Name - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 9:48 pm:

    “LSenateGOP@ILSenateGOP
    Leader Radogno on SB 2048: This bill is $7 billion out of balance”

    So let Rauner file a balanced budget bill. Two years, no bill from Rauner. What a waste.


  23. - Mama - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:01 pm:

    Higher Ed and Social Services just got burnt!


  24. - Mama - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:03 pm:

    I forgot to include the state vendors as being burnt too. This is the best they can do? Why not amend the HB?


  25. - Dandy Edward - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:07 pm:

    Joe Blow and Nick Name Rauner has proposed a budget for the last two years. Yes they were out of balance, but it is Mike and John job to fo negotiate with the governor to fill in the revenue difference.


  26. - Mama - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:23 pm:

    “As lawmakers debate the budget in Springfield, Maryville’s 132-year home for youth will close.”

    Where will these children go?


  27. - Mama - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:29 pm:

    Dandy, no one can negotiate with a person “Rauner” who refuses to negotiate. End of story.


  28. - Trolling Troll - Wednesday, Jun 1, 16 @ 7:51 am:

    @Chris Welch 7:22 am retweet.

    Amen brother!!


  29. - burbanite - Wednesday, Jun 1, 16 @ 8:40 am:

    - Dandy Edward - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:07 pm:

    So the Governor can giveth to allow the GA to taketh away? Sweet deal! Not. The Gov needs to do his job propose a balanced budget with the revenue everyone agrees needs to happen. Remember tax hike mike?


  30. - Dandy Edward - Wednesday, Jun 1, 16 @ 9:10 am:

    The Governor has proposed a budget. Yes it does not balance, but as he said he is willing to include tax increases such as income and service taxes for a balanced budget. Also he has stated you can not raise revenue without including reforms that will bend the cost structure of state government and improve the state attractiveness for business. Taxes with out reforms accomplishes nothing. As far as tax hikes the Democrats and Republicans need to meet and work this out. Rauner can not pass any tax hikes without Mike and John approval.
