Friday the Chicago NPR station, WBEZ-FM, interviewed formed Republican Govenror Jim Edgar about the tax hike.
The most interesting thing said was Edgar’s comment that current Republican Govenror Bruce Rauner could “have his cake and eat it, too.”
I hadn’t put my thoughts into those succinct words, but I agree.
Rauner had made no secret that he wanted the income tax raised from 3.75% to 4.95%.
Now he has it, but since he vetoed it and mainly Democrats voted to override his veto, he can blame Mike Madigan and John Cullerton.
Talk about having it both ways!
