Isn’t Rauner the elected leader of Illinois? Does anyone besides me think he lacks the required negotiate skills to find workable compromise? Blaming others for his personal failure seems rather childish.
When is this clown going to turnaround Illinois? So far all he’s done in turn Illinois upside down!
These are my degrees…of separation:
The elderly from meals on wheels,
The addicts from counseling,
The social service employees from their jobs,
The MAP recipients from their hopes of graduation,
The union employees from the standard of living…..

And that’s why I’m proud to announce Rauner University, open to all students whose colleges are about to shut down. Tuition is free, and you just have to give me and my partners 51% of your future earnin’s.
My budget cut funding for your school by 31% and provided flat funding for MAP. The Democrats, led by Mike Madigan and the politicians he controls, passed a budget that only cut your school by 8% and increased MAP by more than $20 million.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out which of us is better for higher education.
You have the unique distinction of being the last graduating class in the inglorious history of Chicago State University! Will the last graduate exiting from the auditorium please turn out the lights? Moving vans are going to remove the furniture as soon as we leave.
“Is a college education worth the cost? Well, you’d have to ask professional State of Illinois employees in a couple of months. What a laugh; you have to be BORN into what I have.”

Dave Dahl beat me to it:
Dean Martin: [Barbay has arrived at the groundbreaking of the new Melon School of Business] Ah, Phillip… so glad you could make it. Mr. Melon, this is Dr. Phillip Barbay. He’s the dean of our new Melon School of Business.
Dr. Phillip Barbay: [Thornton extends his hand, Barbay refuses it and takes Martin aside] David, I just want to get it on record that I am totally against this. I don’t think that selling admission to an obviously unqualified student is either ethical or honorable.
Dean Martin: Uh, right… Phil. In Mr. Melon’s defense, it was a really big check.
Rauner, to his pals at the wine club, after giving the commencement address at Chicago State University, ” and then I told them, if you get a college degree it will be easier to get a job.” And they laughed and they laughed and they laughed.Oh Boy it’s fun governin in Illinois.
