In Springfield yesterday, House Speaker Michael Madigan characterized House and Senate Republicans "do-nothing dropouts" for not agreeing to pass an income tax increase. Madigan and his allies in Springfield need to stop whining about the Republicans when they have the votes to pass a sustainable budget on their own.
Speaker Michael Madigan took aim at Gov. Pat Quinn today, telling reporters that he was surprised the prison
officials responsible for the "MGT Push" early prisoner release debacle haven't been fired.
