Quinn said his proposed budget already cut "pretty darn deeply."
But the Democrat governor has faced calls to cut more as he
pushes a budget that includes an income tax increase.
For example, Chicago's Civic Federation says the $1.1 billion in
cuts in Quinn's budget proposed for this year and next should be
quadrupled to more than $4 billion.
Quinn said his administration is preparing to release details of
a "doomsday budget" that will show what will happen to human
services, education and health care if people who advocate "deep,
deep cuts" get their way.
Quinn says such a budget would harm the people of Illinois.
