Statement from Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Bill Brady on Pat Quinn's budget announcement today;
"Today's fourteen hundredths of one percent reduction out of a $13 billion-budget gap shows Governor Quinn protects big government at all costs, and only responds after pressure from taxpayers and the media.
After Blagojevich-style pay hikes for cronies, his bizarre canoe czar, and secret criminal releases, this is yet another slap in the face of taxpayers.
It's a pattern dating back 30 years when he was a labeled a ghost payroller under then Governor Walker. That's why he resigned from State Government in the 1970′s, and it's why we're in crisis today."
