    The definition of skewed survey is …

    Rauner is not the first, but the issue no budget for IL just sreams at you.


  2. - Commonsense in Illinois - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:32 pm:

    This obviously isn’t a poll by the Governor. There are far too many ‘g’s…


  3. - Casual observer - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:38 pm:

    Where is the option to destroy AFSCAMMY?


  4. - Archiesmom - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:39 pm:

    Push poll. Just put it in the trash.


  5. - jim - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:39 pm:

    I thought some of those issues are part and parcel of passing a budget compromise both sides can live with. doesn’t Mackey know that? where’s he been?


  6. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:39 pm:

    The only way you keep it off is so no one will notice or talk about a budget.

    Not an accident.


  7. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:40 pm:

    Honoring contracts?

    Reducing backlog of bills?

    Protecting most vulnerable?

    Maintaining and improving infrastructure?

    Violent crime?

    Public safety?

    Public universities and community colleges?

    Health care?

    Opiod epidemic?

    Geez,, talk about phonin’ it in, Frat Boys. Venture out of your Gold Coast bubble and get real.


  8. - Bobby Catalpa - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:45 pm:

    Radio buttons? What’s with that?

    You can only choose one issue?

    What if there’s more than one issue?

    Someone needs to re-read the SurveyGizmo instructions.


  9. - Allen D - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:46 pm:

    Is it not a Mute point now….


  10. - Rogue Roni - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:52 pm:

    This administration is so out of touch


  11. - Blue dog dem - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:55 pm:

    -term limits= i dont care.
    -property tax freeze= i want them lowered.
    -improving education=good enough as is. Trying to do too much.
    -creating jobs=not the role of gov’t
    -reforming pension=bankruptcyw/federal help
    -others=bring oreo production back to U.S.
    -ridding Illinois politics of corruption=wont be many left.
    -protecting taxpayers=why start now.


  12. - Amalia - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:55 pm:

    preserving women’s reproductive rights…HB40


  13. - Saluki - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 2:58 pm:

    What Wordslinger said….

    This last 10 days of Illinois politics is fit for a Stephen King Novel.


  14. - Bobby Catalpa - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 3:00 pm:

    Funny thing is — and maybe this is unintentional which makes it pathetic — is that Rauner hasn’t done any of these yet.

    What, this is like strategy planning for the next two years?


  15. - Fool On The Hill - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 3:03 pm:

    …preserving and improving social services for our most vulnerable citizens…?

    …protecting natural resources…?


  16. - Mongo - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 3:17 pm:

    Is this Allen D. the same as the former small village board member and Libertarian that Rauner elected to the House as a Republican? And, ummm, moot point, not mute point?? Unless you are snarkily noting the silence of some players in this budget disaster.

    -term limits= This has no fiscal impact at all…zero. Zip. Nada.

    property tax freeze= It would be unnecessary if the State would meet its obligation and fully fund schools…schools are by far the greatest part of our property taxes because they make up what the state is supposed to provide but does not


  17. - JS Mill - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 3:18 pm:

    =Geez,, talk about phonin’ it in, Frat Boys. Venture out of your Gold Coast bubble and get real.=

    Yep.


  18. - Gruntled University Employee - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 3:23 pm:

    If enough people choose “Ridding IL Government of Corruption” will Rauner then give up on his re-election bid?


  19. - Robert the Bruce - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 3:33 pm:

    What’s “Protecting taxpayers”? Should I be concerned?


  20. - Gruntled University Employee - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 3:38 pm:

    Robert the Bruce

    Be concerned, be very concerned.


  21. - Yeah - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 3:39 pm:

    Where is junk tax free muni bonds for the 1 percent?


  22. - Exhausted - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 3:48 pm:

    I’d rather see:

    Which option do you prefer?
    o Raise taxes significantly and continue government spending exactly as has been done?

    o Keep taxes where they are and substantially reduce some of the services government provides? (If yes, please use the space below to fill in what you think should be reduced/cut)

    o Lower taxes as well as significantly reduce government services offered? (If yes, please use the space below to fill in what you think should be reduced/cut)

    o Just build robots to run and do everything, lay back on the beaches of Illinois, and enjoy life to the fullest?

    -Simple, right? I’d pick option 4, by the way.


  23. - My New Handle - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 4:06 pm:

    My previous post didn’t show up here, so in short, the governor said he did not have an email because got more accomplished without it, according to a 2/25/2016 article in The Daily Herald by Mike Riopell. So how big can his email list be?


  24. - Chicago Cynic - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 4:16 pm:

    It’s just not top of mind for the Rauner crowd.


  25. - Cubs in '16 - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 4:18 pm:

    ‘What issues are important to you?’

    Governors doing their job.


  26. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 4:20 pm:

    Stayin’ the course!


  27. - facts are stubborn thingss - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 4:28 pm:

    I vote for the Gov. to put on his big boy pants and quit calling everybody names and set down and build trust by negotiating a tough cuts and revenue budget with leaders. Leave the TA items for the 2018 election…30 - 60 matters.


  28. - Flynn's mom - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 4:31 pm:

    Where is the option for a Governor who governs and considers the needs of all state residents and not just the 1%?


  29. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 5:04 pm:

    Term limits, Rauner’S TERM LIMIT.


  30. - Allen D - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 6:22 pm:

    - Mongo - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 3:17 pm:

    no not the same, I am a State worker down state, and yes it was sort of a joke as this tug of will has been from both sides.


  31. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 8:05 pm:

    He’ll run on, No Budget? No Problem!


  32. - Ducky LaMoore - Wednesday, Mar 8, 17 @ 8:17 pm:

    A short list of the less important things Bruce Rauner won’t accomplish as governor.
