This is an outrage! Pat Quinn decided to use his budget cutting powers to punish the most vulnerable people in the state. He does not have the political will or courage to cut non-essential services or any other waste and mismanagement. The special interests would not like that. His campaign bribes would dry up.
Here are the people who will be hurt the most by the inept, cowardly, and irresponsible appointed Governor:
- Elementary and high school education is taking a $241 million dollars
- $84 million in student transportation
- $68.5 million in reading improvement block grants
- Higher education is cut by $100 million
- Human services cut by $312.6 million
- The Department of Aging is cut by $17.4 million
Why do Quinn, and the Democrats in general hate the vulnerable, weak, and dependent? What does the Democratic Party have against education? Do they really want a state full of Mortimer Snerds?
Pat Quinn, through these actions has proven he is bought and owned, like a slave, by the special interests. In these hard economic times, do we really need an Illinois Arts Council? In these tough times do we really need to spend tens of billions of dollars on construction projects, many of them unnecessary? Do we really need to be giving unaccountable grants to every organization that asks for them? The list can go on and on.
Pat Quinn wants a tax increase. He has advocated for a tax increase for over five years. He will get that tax increase or every vulnerable person in this state will suffer. This is not the politics of effectiveness. it is not the politics of good governance. It is the politics of terrorism. Political Jihad. Taking hostages to get what he wants.
Ask yourself this- are we going to be better off if Pat Quinn gets elected governor? Looking at his idea of fiscal irresponsibility, not just no, but hell no!
