He claims they have nothing to do with the 2018 primary — one year from now. As if it’s not off-putting enough to see the Governor in a plaid shirt presumably in his garage in endless ads that I’d love to be collecting the cost to run.
Announced in the news lately is that IL would be the first state ever downgraded to junk bond status. But he says not to worry. He’s intent on decreasing taxes and increasing jobs. And lowering property taxes. How do you do that? Wonder how many companies want to make home base in a junk bond state. How many will get great tax incentives? I’ll bet plenty. But not to worry he’s going to decrease property taxes, remember?
“No more duct tape,” he claims. He’s going to reform our fiscal policies and our schools. I think his mission is to throw out the Chicago Public School system, and whatever he’s thinking of replacing it makes me shutter. Downstate schools, and coincidentally voters, love him, of course, because they get the school budgets they need. Us city folk don’t buy it.
Separately, did you ever wonder why the IL state lottery couldn’t pay winners over $400 for months? And who pays for the endless ads? Why can’t that money go to the Chicago Public School system like it was originally created to do?
But wouldn’t it be a hoot if all of a sudden Trump, in his primary festivals already taking place for a 2020 election, showed up in a red plaid, flannel shirt?
What’s happening to honesty being considered a moral principle we value?
