There is a great joke about Illinois. You do not have to look for corruption. Like a cow, it saunters over to you and moos in your face. This is the government Pat Quinn presides over. The best indicator of future performance is past performance. When it comes to corruption in Illinois, Pat Quinn has failed miserably.
When it comes to governance, Pat Quinn has failed miserably. Pat Quinn is selling us a bill of goods. He is no reformer, he has no concept of fiscal integrity, and he is no independent. Pat Quinn is part and parcel of the Chicago Democratic Machine. He is a proud member of the most thoroughly corrupt political party in America.
Pat Quinn hates reformers, he hates independents, and he hates the people of Illinois. Why else would he take this state into insolvency? Why has he been pushing and income tax increase which will devastate businesses, create a loss of jobs, and take more money out of your check every payday?
Only a person who hates people does the things Pat Quinn does. Pat Quinn has failed miserably in his past performance in governance. Since that is an indicator of future performance, ask yourself this- do you want a failure as the next governor of Illinois?
