Walker - great minds think alike. I just posted something along those lines on the other post/thread regarding HB 40. Others have been vocal but McSweeney has been VERY vocal - especially over the last 3 months.
Rauner may keep his money to himself from here on out. If so, the ILGOP will be seriously hurting. They’ve ridden the Rauner Bucks train too long. I can easily see the ILGOP splintering as the national organization is doing now.
Is it weird that part of my reaction is: here he is, here at last, the candidate Illinois voted to be their Governor? The one who will take the slings and arrows, the one who will make calls that are unpopular with both sides of the aisle? The one who will take clear and decisive action?
Please don’t take that to mean I’m celebrating his signing of the bill. I’m just trying to articulate my reaction and wondering if it’s strange.
Earnest - This was not an act of bravery, it was a cynical move to the middle for the election. Rauner owns the GOP so he knows there is no downside to sign this. He is making his pitch to suburban women.
