So the big question for me is … do we settle for a stopgap budget OR force them to do a “real” budget instead of kicking the can for another 6 months. This seriously should have been over on July 1, 2015. Look at all of the victims … can we really wait? NOTHING has been solved or even close to being solved. They’re all fighting over a stopgap budget now.
The upside of supporting Rauner is that he could win this game or at least this inning.
But, what I don’t get is what is so different about the City schools and the CPS pensions vs the other programs across the State. Other than Rauner just doesn’t like unions.
perhaps the Governor would like to look at other governments about mismanagement. for example, Townships and mismanagement instead of a simple blame the City of Chicago meme. several in the NW suburbs spend way more on administrative costs for General Assistance than they should, in the case of Maine Township, an amount that is greater than the amount given out to those in need. how about those “CEOs”?

Governor’s trying to push municipal bankruptcy law through GA - states can’t file bankruptcy. With municipal bankruptcy he can bust ALL the unions. He’ll find a way to send state pensions back to municipalities and bust them, too.
Does he even know what Collectivist is? Derived from Collectivism: The principles or system of ownership and control of the means of production and distribution by the people collectively, usually under the supervision of a government.

This needs to stop. Why bother with a stop gap to be in the stay spot in Dec. It’s madness….Seriously how does anything change, when he will not listen to sound views..labels everything a collective plot..how did he make any money.
