* WDWS reporter Michael Kiser’s interview of Gov. Bruce Rauner is somewhat of a gold mine for people who follow Illinois politics. You should listen to the whole thing, and I plan to do one more post about something else the governor said before the day is done, but here is the governor talking about term limits and the budget…
Some people say, well, term limits, that has nothing to do with the budget.
Boy, oh boy. Term limits, huge impact on the budget.
If we get folks in office who are there for the right reasons, not for a career to make money, but just as public servants, we’ll have more likely to have balanced budgets, we’ll have a democracy with less corruption, and businesses and job creators and investors and working families will have more confidence in the state and will expand our tax base.
Term limits can help balance our budgets for the long term in a very strong way.
