Never have been a fan of his, however I have never got the impression he is a dishonest man, because of that and knowing McConnel his telling a lie to another man's face would not come as a surprise to me. To my knowledge nobody, (McConnell included) has specifically denied the charge against him.

Illinois Cesspool Is Partially Alive and Still At It. Excuse me, but doesn't Chicago have the toughest gun laws in America? Maybe it is time for the Governor to declare martial law in Chicago, Cook County.

As I asked at first, do you know this from legal precedence UKWP, or that's just how you read it? Obviously you THINK that's what it means, and I understood your view from the start.

Oh my goodness, I believe it is up to the person whether they wear short or long sleeves based on what temperature is in the room. Some news outlets will do just about anything to stir up identity politics. With the many very difficult issues we have in this country, this one doesn't pass the "smell test".

Rauner details cost-cutting ideas for Illinois

1 year, 1 month 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.
