Good for Beardstown but did Quinn have to wait until election time to hand out tax dollars, I think not but it can buy votes from the stupid.

It appears Quinn is smarter than Obama, at least Quinn has enough sense to order Ebola exposed people to stand a 21 day quarantine even if Obama won't stop travel between west Africa and America.

And for a differing view...the largest public works project since the federal highway system...and they aren't sure why elementary kids improved but high schoolers didn't. Except they suspect it's because the younger teachers were attracted to the new elementary schools. http://newscenter.berkeley.edu/2012/08/14/la-unif...

Rauner details cost-cutting ideas for Illinois

4 months, 1 week ago Associated Press

Plan includes selling state planes and limiting outside employment for legislators

From Associated Press:

Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner has some proposals for cutting what he calls wasteful spending in Illinois.

Rauner told reporters Thursday that he'll sell most of the state's planes. He adds the state could save $60 million by moving lawmakers from pensions into 401(k) plans. He calls the Department of Central Management Services a "patronage cesspool." And he says he would merge the comptroller's and treasurer's offices to save $12 million.

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn calls Rauner's plan "a prank" that contains no new ideas.

Rauner says he'll be rolling out more of his plans, including a budget, over the next few weeks. He has criticized Quinn for excessive spending, cronyism and trying to raise taxes. Rauner says he wouldn't take any salary or pension as governor.
