Only voting down would-be House Democrats statewide can wrest Illinois
from the clutches of Boss Madigan
Kass once again lays out the argument that voting for ANY Democrat is a vote for Michael Madigan and his continued failed policies that are destroying the once great State of Illinois. [Excerpt below, emphasis mine]
The state has among the worst — if not the worst — credit ratings in the nation. We’re drowning in debt, with more to come, and the state (meaning you) owing at least $85 billion in unfunded pension liabilities. You can count on taxes going up in a post-election deal that’s likely to include more casino gambling and even more power for the boss.
You know who the boss is, don’t you?
House Speaker Michael Madigan.
He’s the alpha Democrat, lord of the state Democratic Party, puppet master of the Cook County Democrats, boss of judges high and low, boss of the legislature, of laws and regulations, boss of everything, decade after decade after decade. He dictates tax policy, yet has made a fortune in his private law business, reducing the taxes of the powerful real estate interests. He’s installed his daughter, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, as the top law enforcement officer in the state.
