  1. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 2:41 pm:

    For Quinn: Now that you’ve brought Chicago an Olive Garden, when can we expect a Red Lobster?

    For Rauner: Can I please have a million dollars?


  2. - bored now - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 2:44 pm:

    i’d ask both of them how they planned on keeping illinois from “going bankrupt” without additional revenues. i’m no expert, but it seems that even if you cut every bit of discretionary spending from illinois’ budget, you still wouldn’t be able to meet the state’s obligations, even in an improving economy. even a turn-around specialist knows that you have to have revenue to stay afloat…


  3. - OneMan - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 2:47 pm:

    Governor Quinn: Should the voters of Illinois expect you to have any more success pushing your agenda in the legislature in the next 4 years than in the last 6?

    Mr. Rauner: What happens if economic growth does not provide the revenue growth you expect?


  4. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 2:48 pm:

    Quinn; How would you describe your relationship with the General Assembly, and can you point to successes you have had working together with the GA?

    Rauner; You say you have been successful at everything, do you regret saying that now, and can you point to a failure you overcame and learned from?


  5. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 2:51 pm:

    (Snark)

    Quinn; With an empty fridge, and a lawn that needs mowing, what exactly IS your domestic agenda?

    Rauner; Is the pristine Carhartt Coat…itchy?


  6. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 2:52 pm:

    for both what is your position on marijuna?and why?


  7. - Belle - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 2:53 pm:

    Love that 47th asks for the dough with ‘please.’


  8. - MrJM (@MisterJayEm) - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 2:54 pm:

    To both of the candidates: In this campaign, each of you made a decision that was yours and yours alone: your choice of running mate. Please tell us why you chose your running mate, how you made that decision, and what that decision tells us about you.

    – MrJM


  9. - FormerParatrooper - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 2:56 pm:

    Both candidates:

    What do you think is the most pressing issue the State faces? What is your solution? A direct answer please.


  10. - Crazy Like a Fox - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:01 pm:

    What do the two men actually respect about one another?

    They are adversely different but can probably learn things from each other.


  11. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:01 pm:

    Quinn: “Was Harold Washington wrong about you?”

    Rauner: “In what ways did your friendship with Mayor Emanuel encourage you to run against Governor Quinn?”


  12. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:03 pm:

    Ask both candidates what their favorite pop songs are so VanillaMan can write a song parody for each.


  13. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:06 pm:

    Quinn: “Who had a worse Lt. Governor while in office, you or Rod Blagojevich?”

    Rauner: “If you were told your Montana ranch had termites, would you burn it down and rebuild, or sell it to a senior citizen thinking he was buying computer parts?”


  14. - Not it - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:07 pm:

    Quinn: If you win re-election are there any of Rauner’s ideas you like and would implement?

    Rauner: If you win are there any current Quinn programs or ideas you think are good that you would keep?

    This should show that the candidates really know what their opponents plans and ideas are. Surely there is something the other guy is doing right.


  15. - Carl Nyberg - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:08 pm:

    Since Rauner brought Harold Washington into the campaign,

    “Bruce Rauner, you returned to Chicago from East Coast in 1981. What was your attitude toward Harold Washington when he was alive? Did you vote for him? Did you donate? Did you support Bernard Epton?”


  16. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:10 pm:

    Quinn: “Why do you believe wealthy Americans can’t serve their country in public office?”

    Rauner: “Why do you believe incompetent Americans can’t serve their country in public office?”


  17. - not interested - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:11 pm:

    Rauner-Do you have any successful job creation stories in your business career?
    Quinn- If elected how can you stand up to the unions to gain concessions on the pensions?


  18. - Yellow Dog Democrat - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:11 pm:

    Does it really matter what questions you ask? Both candidates are running purely on talking points.

    I wish the rules were set up like a Pub Crawl.

    You don’t get to answer the next question until you answer the previous question.

    Okay:

    Rauner said back in May that he “feared” pension reform was unconstitutional. i think he ought to answer the question of whether he thinks it is constitutional or not. If he wins, he will be sworn to uphold the Constitutional in a few months…it is a fair question.

    And, given the likelihood, or at least the possibility, that pension reform will be overturned, I would like to hear from both candidates what they would do if that happens. Seek additional cuts, or new revenue, and if so from where?


  19. - Rich C - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:14 pm:

    I would rather vote for a Vinicky/Mackey ticket.


  20. - Skeptic - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:15 pm:

    To Both: “What one or two major accomplishments of yours qualify you to be Governor of Illinois?”

    A positive question, asking in essence, “Why should I vote for you?”


  21. - tsavo - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:15 pm:

    Mr. Rauner, if you are elected Governor, would you attend funeral services for State Troopers killed in the line of duty?

    Gov. Quinn why didn’t you attend the funeral services for Troopers killed in the line of duty yet a few days later you attended Roger Ebert’s memorial service?


  22. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:15 pm:

    Quinn: “How many memberships in Bruce Rauner’s wine group can be bought for the $54,500,000 in tax payer dollars you granted to your voter base in 2010?”

    Rauner: “Wouldn’t it have been cheaper to get elected promising to give every voter in Illinois a $20 gift card, and a ride in one of your helicopters, than spending it this way and losing?”


  23. - William j Kelly - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:17 pm:

    Why not questions for Chad Grimm?


  24. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:19 pm:

    Quinn: “How many Illinoisans moved out of state while you have been governor?”

    Rauner: “How many U-Haul dealers have you bought in Illinois to take advantage of folks leaving the State?”


  25. - William j Kelly - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:20 pm:

    Where is this debate taking place and will chad Grimm be there? If not, why?


  26. - formerGOPer - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:21 pm:

    What are the programs you think are the most important for the State to fund? Follow-up: explain how you would cut each by 20%. It’s always so easy to cut the programs you don’t like (which of course are vital to someone else).


  27. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:24 pm:

    i take it chad grimm will be shut out again?why?


  28. - Wensicia - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:27 pm:

    Rauner: With your flip-flops on major issues, why should I believe anything you say?

    Quinn: With your breaking of promises made four years ago, why should I believe anything you say?


  29. - A guy... - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:28 pm:

    For Pat Quinn: What plans do you have that could actually change the way this state operates that are different than what we’ve experienced over the past 6 years? What plan have you ever operated off of, or is it always just a short horizon?

    Bruce Rauner: If you plan to grow the economy to meet revenue demands, what methodology would you use, who would be targeted (what industries?) to grow in Illinois or come to Illinois? What regulations could be changed to make us the most competitive the quickest?


  30. - A guy... - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:29 pm:

    Reviewing comments I guess I need to ask, this was a serious question, right?


  31. - my two cents - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:33 pm:

    Quinn- why didn’t you put an engineer in charge at IDOT?
    Rauner- if elected, will you put an engineer in charge at IDOT?


  32. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:33 pm:

    both,how much does a gallon of milk and loaf of bread cost? (boxers\briefs?)


  33. - Frenchie Mendoza - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:42 pm:

    Rauner: How is it that you claim a success at everything you’ve ever done in your entire life — and then you pick Evelyn Sanguinetti as a running mate?

    What’s up with that? Is it your first failure? Can voters expect more of these failures?


  34. - Jose Abreu's next homer - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:45 pm:

    Using your old man strength, how much can you bench press?


  35. - a drop in - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:48 pm:

    YDD, I think a pub crawl would make for a much more interesting debate. If the candidate doesn’t answer a question directly, they need to take a drink. I’ll turn in about 45 minutes into it.


  36. - Robert the Bruce - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:54 pm:

    “I’m sorry, but you didn’t answer the last question. Perhaps you misheard me. The question was .”


  37. - Skeptic - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:54 pm:

    A drop in: I think you’re on to something. And make it like “Hi! Bob” For every “Corrupt” or “People of Illinois” or “Shake Up Springfield” or something, everyone has to take a drink.


  38. - Robert the Bruce - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 3:54 pm:

    (repeat the last question)


  39. - Knome Sane - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:01 pm:

    =Why not questions for Chad Grimm?

    Who is Chad Grimm?


  40. - Frenchie Mendoza - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:06 pm:

    Re: Rauner drinking game

    Off-topic, but in reference to the comment above, I suggest the following drinking game phrases: “my wife and I” and “backbone of” and “referendum” and “social agenda” and “distraction”


  41. - ericthered - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:08 pm:

    For Bruce Raumney: Would you hire a CEO to run a $91 billion company in an industry that they a) had no experience with and b) had no faith in, i.e. would Bruce Rauner hire Bruce Rauner for the job Bruce Rauner says he wants?
    For Pat Quinn: What’s up with the Fenwick football team anyway?


  42. - Carl Nyberg - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:10 pm:

    Questions for Chad Grimm: how many people you asked for $100 or more for your campaign? Of your Facebook friends, how many have contacted 20 or more of their friends and asked them to vote for you or support you?


  43. - Casual observer - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:14 pm:

    To both: assuming the pension legislation is found to be unconstitutional, what is your plan B?


  44. - Ron Burgundy - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:20 pm:

    For Bruce Rauner: You’ve been in the private sector your whole life, and are now seeking the state’s top public sector job. What makes you think you are capable of succeeding in the public sector?

    For Pat Quinn: You’ve been in the public sector most of your adult life. Could you have been successful in the private sector, what would you have done, and what about you makes you think you would have been successful?


  45. - MrJM (@MisterJayEm) - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:20 pm:

    @Wensicia

    BRUTAL!

    – MrJM


  46. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:28 pm:

    Rauner; explain how you see the separation of powers in your view of being governor?

    Quinn; why didn’t you appeal the overturn of your move to withhold legislator’s pay?


  47. - walker - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:28 pm:

    Rauner: You said you will “phase out the tax increase over 4 years”, but it will already be reduced before you take office — how much and when will you request an income tax increase?

    Quinn: How many times do you say one thing, and find your own directors apparently doing the opposite? How is that leadership?


  48. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:29 pm:

    Quinn; why didn’t you appeal all the way to the Supreme Court, the overturn of your move to withhold legislator’s pay?

    Apologies.


  49. - Tim Snopes - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:33 pm:

    Q for Bruce:
    Should you win…Does it not scare the hell out of you that state revenues will immediately drop by millions beginning in January, and that you have no plan to deal with that loss of revenue?
    Shouldn’t the public be scared as hell?
    Shouldn’t public employees and school teachers be scared as hell?


  50. - Sir Reel - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:33 pm:

    Quinn: what would you do differently in a third term? (Since what you been doing hasn’t solved the big problems.)

    Rauner: never having held public office, how will you work with all interests in the state, not just those who agree with you? (Explains itself.)


  51. - RNUG - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:39 pm:

    I’ll second both YDD’s and casual observer’s pension questions while rephrasing and expanding …

    For both candidates:

    Given that the ISC says government pension benefits cannot be diminished in any way, shape or form in Illinois, what is your plan B?

    Specifically:

    1) How do you plan to fully fund the 5 state level pension systems? Do you favor maintaining the current 1995 ramp and raising additional revenue as needed? Would you prefer to rework the ramp to fully fund the pension systems sooner than required by the 1995 law and, if so, where would you find that revenue? Or do you have a different plan that you can delineate in detail right now?

    2) The state sponsored funds are just the tip of the pension iceberg. How do you plan to deal with the non-IMRF pension fund crisis that is looming at the city and county level? Will you just ignore it? Will you change state mandates? Will you bail out local municipalities and, if so, specifically where will you get the revenue?


  52. - Angel's Sword - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:47 pm:

    Can’t believe no one’s said this, but for Bruce Rauner: Did you really think… that no one would find out?

    :P


  53. - William j Kelly - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:48 pm:

    Amanda, what is the answer to my question? Will Chad be included in the debate? And if not why not?


  54. - William j Kelly - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 4:54 pm:

    I never ceases to amaze me at how fast an honest question or an honest statement can bring the bs to a screeching halt.


  55. - Casual observer - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 5:02 pm:

    To both: What functions of government can or should be privatized?


  56. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 5:03 pm:

    ===I never ceases to amaze me at how fast an honest question or an honest statement can bring the bs to a screeching halt.===

    Or it could mean the person saying the statement really knows how to take the fun out of anything….

    Food for thought.


  57. - Casual observer - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 5:06 pm:

    To both: Should a domestic violence conviction prevent someone from having a conceal carry license or FOID?


  58. - William j Kelly - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 5:09 pm:

    It never eases to amaze me at how predictable Oswego is, so anyway is chad on the ballot or not? Do his rights count for anything? What about the rights of the people who circulated and defended his petitions from rauner? Why even have a debate? Or an election? Dope.


  59. - Casual observer - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 5:10 pm:

    Follow up: Should a domestic violence conviction be a factor in the hiring process?


  60. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 5:15 pm:

    ===It never eases to amaze me at how predictable Oswego is,===

    ===so anyway is chad on the ballot or not?===

    Do a search, you’ll find your answer…if it’s rhetorical…===Do his rights count for anything? What about the rights of the people who circulated and defended his petitions from rauner? Why even have a debate? Or an election?===…being Otter from “Animal House” is not going to get you past Rahm.

    You are the only person who can get me to vote for Rauner…


  61. - Casual observer - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 5:17 pm:

    To Bruce: Bears or Steelers?


  62. - AFSCME Steward - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 5:34 pm:

    Quinn: You advocate increasing the minimum wage to a “living wage”. Aren’t minimum wage jobs for people just starting out in life ? Where is the responsibility for the individual to gain skills that allow them to increase their earnings ?

    Rauner: You have spoken conflicting positions on a variety of issues over the past year. What is your actual position on the minimum wage, abortion and gay rights ?


  63. - Stuff happens - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 6:04 pm:

    My bias might be showing, but…

    Rauner: How much do you think the State of Illinois can be bought for, and if elected do you think you can recoup that before it goes bankrupt?

    Quinn: No question, but I like the navy-striped purple tie.
    Quinn alternate if a question is required: Who do you think the Blackhawks will cut to get under the salary cap?


  64. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 6:18 pm:

    6% want someone else why can`t we hear him out?


  65. - Macbeth - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 6:24 pm:

    Rauner: Do you plan to force a strike and fire state employees?


  66. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 6:26 pm:

    both,exit plan for the war on drugs?


  67. - circularfiringsquad - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 6:36 pm:

    Mitt: how many misstatements will you make tonight?
    Quinn: Did you think this rich guy would fumble opportunity?


  68. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 6:45 pm:

    both,do you believe in ufo`s?


  69. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 6:56 pm:

    PQ: When, exactly, did you figure out your running mate was a crook and what, if anything, did you do about it?

    BR: What is the best company GTCR ever put together and why?


  70. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 6:56 pm:

    all three,do you think there is a shadow goverment,a hidden hand?and this is just theater antics?


  71. - siyotanka - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 7:09 pm:

    With the close of the 150th commemoration of the Civil War fast approaching; why haven’t either of you, the candidates, signed on to the celebration activities in Springfield next year? This can be the biggest exposure for Illinois in years!


  72. - siyotanka - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 7:10 pm:

    and it will not cost tax payers a dime!


  73. - Odysseus - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 8:18 pm:

    I’d ask both of them the same question:

    “Once the state pension reform bill is properly declared unconstitutional, what plan do you have to fully fund the state’s obligations that is within the bounds of the Constitution?”


  74. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 8:24 pm:

    Rauner; explain how your tax returns & drivers license say Winnetka, and you were able to prove a Chicago residency for Payton Prep. How did you pass residency, specifically?

    Quinn; looking back, especially now as Governor, has the cutback amendment and the elimination of the three member been successful, and use governmental examples besides the lower cost.


  75. - Gooner - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 8:46 pm:

    To Rauner — what will the income tax be year by year for the your term, if elected?

    He’s claimed that he will reduce it over time, but has never provided specifics.

    Based on his statements, it could be 5% each year for the next three, and then drop to 3% the last one. Is that what he intends? If not, what will be he plan for rates?


  76. - Casual observer - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 9:15 pm:

    Governor, why didn’t you follow through on “fumigation”? Imagine the problems you wouldn’t have now (NRI, patronage). You could have sealed the deal as a true reformer if you had removed any trace of the Blago administration.


  77. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Sep 30, 14 @ 9:28 pm:

    both,what is your opinion on why chad grimm is not here?


  78. - One to the Dome - Wednesday, Oct 1, 14 @ 4:53 am:

    Race relations: Both: it is clear that both of you are tring to sway minority communities, what is your view on the current racial relations and disparities in Illinois? What have you done specifically OVER THE YEARS, to address any disparities that you see? As Gov. What are your plans/what have you done to improve health and economic disparities in these communities?


  79. - MyTwoCents - Wednesday, Oct 1, 14 @ 6:01 am:

    Both: How would you increase funding for education? Specifically, what other areas would be cut since even if the tax rate remains at 5% it is highly unlikely there will be enough revenue to increase funding.

    Rauner: Do you plan on skipping pension payments as a way to increase funding for other areas? If so, why since that has been the primary driver of pension problems since 1917.


  80. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Oct 1, 14 @ 6:38 am:

    i can`t believe that everyone on the ballot did not get an invitation(a level playing field for all that have qualified?)the choice of none of the above is on the ballot, i`m undecided an would like to hear all the candidates, did you think no one would find out?


  81. - Jimmy - Wednesday, Oct 1, 14 @ 7:14 am:

    What’s the most you have ever paid for a bottle of wine?


  82. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Oct 1, 14 @ 7:23 am:

    if bruce and pat boycott till there counterpart is included,it would be a stand for freedom of choice baby


  83. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, Oct 1, 14 @ 7:30 am:

    Seriously,

    Please ask our Governor what he intends to do differently. Illinois hasn’t had it easy, and he hasn’t really helped the situation enough for his reelection, or he wouldn’t be polling where he is today. Why should voters give him another chance?

    Ask Rauner what makes him think MJM and Cullerton would be better working partners with him, than they have been with Quinn. After Blagojevich and Quinn, these guys appear very comfortable working around inept governors and could very easily work around Rauner as well.


  84. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, Oct 1, 14 @ 7:32 am:

    To both:

    I have received a question from an unknown senior state leader who wants to know what is your favorite type of apple, and how do you intend to polish it when you serve it to him every day?


  85. - Pjsmith - Monday, Oct 6, 14 @ 8:59 pm:

    I would ask Quinn why his campaign doesn’t hire a better styling consultant. His suits fit horribly and the horrendous ties he wears look like they came from KMart. Rep diagonal ties? This is not the 80s. Your bald. Trim the side hair down and look younger and thinner. Oh, and on a substantive side, Quinn has no backstory. It’s like the party guest nobody remembers inviting.
