"Gov. Quinn is staying on his course, no matter how detrimental the outcome to
hardworking and struggling families in this state. I would like to see the
governor more engaged in finding solutions to our fiscal mess."
continued: "No one is talking about entitlements. It's important that we put our
entitlement programs back into balance and take the spending pressure off the
pensions. Actually, Medicaid spending in Illinois has doubled in the past five
years, and we must implement those ‘hard fixes' by improving oversight to
cut fraud as well as add residency and recertification requirements."
