eaglebeaky - Rauner’s budget superstar exits Illinois with $165,000–and no budget - Quincy, IL News -
That may be true Qfingers, but if so why did the (so-called) "superstar finance expert" even take the Illinois job in the first place if she apparently had no intention of trying to come up with some kind of a solution? Remember that airline pilot (Capt. Sullenberger) a while back, who managed to successfully land his crippled plane full of passengers in the middle of the Hudson River (saving a whole…
ONCEMORE1 - Clinics to open in Senior Center, Indian Hills - Quincy, IL News -
I wonder how many of these "Free Clinics" Durbin gasses on about he's ever visited for actual healthcare, with his Golden Government (taxpayer supported) insurance. One thing to walk in as a State Senator with the media and entourage to check the service, quite another to be one of the indigent or elderly trying to actually GET service. And, like anything the Government does, it'll…

eaglebeaky - Federal Court blocks EPA’s Clean Water rule from taking effect on August 28, 2015 - Quincy, IL

So my first thought was that (maybe) it's purely a geographic issue? Perhaps Illinois falls under the jurisdiction of a different federal court, and not this one located in North Dakota. I honestly don't know,…

Due in would do well to help those facing economic problems find work. It's his party that is responsible for today's economy. With all the different sources to transport people from home to our current clinics, I question the need for this. Don't start thinking Durbin is Daddy Big Bucks either. "That money came out of OUR pockets."
