Quinn complains about the Rauner budget after he and his liberal cohorts ran Illinois into the ground spending money we don't have and giving away the farm to public unions. You had your chance Quinn and with a democrat legislature behind you. Between Madigan, Cullerton and Quinn we may never get out of the fiscal hole the democrats created.

Obama is a narcissistic arrogant fool who isn't qualified to lead America or be commander in chief. He either can't or won't protect America and Americans as evidenced by his open borders policy. Will we have to put boots on the ground to defeat ISIS, likely yes, if they are to be defeated? You don't feed the crocodile hoping it will eat you last.
