What does the New Era of Rauner Mean for IL Politics

Posted: February 28, 2015 by tennesseetree in IL at fiscal crossroads, IL in Fiscal Ruins

Pat Quinn out and a new IL Governor has moved in and is redrawing the State’s economic and political landscape completely it appears in the opposite direction that Quinn and democrats were trying to pull it. The big question in everyone’s mind is: Will IL be moving backward in the financial abyss or forward out of it with Rauner is now at the controls? Or will it all amount to a big stalemate and slide to financial ruin if Rauner just slashes State services and costs but is unable to achieve anything positive? What is apparent so far is that Rauner’s victory in November did not carry a voter consensus endorsement of his fiscal, political, or social agendas. Rauner’s win was instead, a repudiation of past Governor Pat Quinn. But now, IL is stuck with Rauner and will have to come to terms with him as a political animal

Rauner’s victory didn’t carry other GOP members in Illinois
