"We recognize the future of this state is at stake, and we are increasingly willing to govern notwithstanding the political costs of doing so," said Sen. Don Harmon, D-Oak Park. "I think we have reached the point where citizens of Illinois are more willing to tolerate a revenue increase than they are continued inaction in the face of a crisis."

Actually you've reached a point where I'm more willing you taking a pay cut than a revenue increase...

When will serious cost cutting in IL take place?!?! We don't have a revenue problem in IL!

Hopefully Rauner can veto it.

Was it here that I read out year spending is 500 million and we only take in 300 million? Or whatever the numbers are. Seriously where does it stop? All politicians should not be paid till we have a balanced budget. Simple as that.

What alternate universe is this motherfucker living in? I guarantee that's not what anyone is thinking.

It's Rauner's fault because he refuses to cow-tow to the Dems constant spending with zero cuts. Rauner says "No, you're going to cut spending and no extra financial burden on the citizens" and he's the bad guy. Absolutely boggles the mind.

I've said that...and I'm met with "well he needs to work with the democrats in congress to get a budget passed"

At that point its not worth arguing with someone so stupid.

Anytime I hear something I like that, I just stop talking. You just can't get through their heads.

Which plan are the Illinois DEMs following?

1. Cut budget and find way to chop ridiculous pensions. Balance said budget and work on the debt.

2. Tax, tax, tax to try to keep up with rising costs until bankruptcy eventually makes the cuts for them?

So last night, channel 5 news had this story. Something like 4.95% State tax that they're asking for. A 41.4% increase over the 3.5% now...

Hopefully Rauner veto's that shit.

Sorry, it's 3.75% now... Not 3.5% like I said above, so a 32% increase.

The tribune believes this is very unlikely to be signed into law. I also tend to agree.
