I understood what he was saying, Migraine... respectfully I am just saying that a "solution" like that probably wouldn't work, for several reasons. First, there's almost certainly a rule against it; EAS serves a purpose, but it has been widely criticized as being wasteful spending for years now (therefore, I doubt that the practice of letting the city game the system by buying up the excess…

Not without another subsidy which ain't gonna' happen since Essential AIr Service is no longer a justification when you have an airline operating already.

If we were able to get an airline that goes to Chicago along with cape air that goes to St. Louis, we'd easily hit the mark. I wonder if any companies that fly out of midway in Chicago would do some kind of flight to Quincy.

I'm not endorsing the idea, just explaining how I read it. It seemed pretty clear from your comment about requiring enplanements that you didn't understand what he was saying.

Rauner solidifies opposition to minimum wage hike without reforms

4 months, 4 weeks ago suntimes.com

Illinois voters approve a November ballot advisory question to increase the state’s minimum wage, that alone will not be enough for Bruce Rauner to push for an increase if he’s elected governor.

The Republican candidate for governor said in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times on Wednesday that even if a majority of voters say they support an increase in Illinois’ minimum wage, it should not be enacted without a series of pro-business reforms.

“As I’ve said all along, I absolutely will support raising the minimum wage in Illinois, but I want to insist that it be included with business reform, workers comp reform, tax rate reduction and tort reform,” Rauner said. “Then I will advocate for it.” 

Asked how he thought he could get the immense package of measures through the state Legislature, the Winnetka venture capitalist said: “I think it’s very doable. I will be working closely with the general assembly.”

Rauner suffered a minimum wage mishap early in his campaign after video showed him saying he was “adamantly, adamantly” against raising the minimum wage in Illinois and believed it should be lowered by $1 an hour to make it equitable with the federal minimum wage. That opened him up to a backlash, which he took on by saying he would in fact be for an increase as long as the federal minimum wage also was increased or if a series of pro-business reforms was pushed through.

On Sunday, Gov. Pat Quinn signed a measure that would put a question on the November ballot asking voters whether the state’s minimum wage should be increased.

Rauner said his position hasn’t changed.
