Bill Brady, Candidate for Governor, released the following statement today about Governor Quinn's obstructionism;
"Pat Quinn yesterday said that the governor of Illinois should be a cheerleader. Unfortunately, Governor Quinn has decided to instead become the state's obstructionist-in-chief. By speaking out against the Meeks voucher bill, he obstructed opportunity for 22,000 children in struggling communities. He continues to obstruct meaningful spending cuts and any serious plans to create a job-growing environment in Illinois or to bring a clean break to the state's culture of corruption.
What the governor should be saying "no' to is the explosion of pension bond indebtedness, especially at a time when we have the worst unfunded pension liability in the nation. I am pleased that so many Republicans stood up for fiscal responsibility on this.
Illinois doesn't need a new cheerleader right now. Illinois needs to send in a new quarterback. And then as we get our state back on track, we'll all finally have something real to cheer about."
