Skillicorn Blasts Madigan

A press release from State Rep. Allen Skillicorn:

Skillicorn Says “Stopgap” is Another Madigan Political Maneuver

SPRINGFIELD – In response to a late move to pass another stopgap in lieu of passing a comprehensive balanced budget, State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) called it another political maneuver by House Speaker Michael Madigan.

“Today, Speaker Madigan passed a pork filled stopgap that cannot even be considered by the Senate until April 26th,” said Skillicorn.

“The Illinois Senate has already adjourned and begun their spring break, meaning this pork-gap will sit in limbo for three more weeks.

“Higher education and social services need urgent, real solutions, not more of Speaker Madigan’s political maneuvers.

“I urge the Speaker to work with both Republicans and Democrats to pass a comprehensive balanced budget immediately.”

Skillicorn noted that this maneuver to pass another stopgap shows there is no intention from the Speaker to pass a complete state budget any time in the near future and this stopgap would only stand to escalate the state’s financial problems further.

  1. That’s what Rauner paid over half a million dollars for him to get elected to do, no surprise.

  2. Skillicorn went from Tea Party, to “Libertarian” to Rauer/Trump supporter all because he followed the money.

    No doubt that if he thought it would get him further up the ladder that he’d jump ship and turn Dem in a heartbeat.

  3. And it all matters not as the slow motion economic collapse of

    the once great state of Illinois continues unabated thanks to Madigan and his gang of thieves.

    Do you see all those home for sale signs going up all over your neighborhoods ?

    It’s all over for Illinois, even Joe Walsh has come to that inevitable conclusion.
