Recently, Governor Rauner vetoed the legislature’s budget proposal. This is much to the dismay of State House Democrats who are seeking the planned steady rise in state tax revenue that a defeated Quinn would have insured. Rauner vetoed the budget proposal due to its $4 Billion Dollar defect spending. Rauner ran a campaign of Austerity and the promise of fiscal conservancy.
Will Rauner live up to his promise, even if that implies under funding public schools and colleges, public health, child care? Will he bring austerity despite it’s deteriorating affects to the public welfare?
We shall see!
All eyes are on Springfield as the budget deadline approaches, Wednesday June 1st, 2015.
