Top Democrat Says Rauner Running State Off Cliff

(Chicago, IL) — Legislative leaders warn the state will run out of money in a few months. House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie said today Democrats won’t cave in to Govenror Rauner’s demands to weaken the power of public worker unions as a condition of a budget agreement. She says Rauner should drop his attack on the middle class before the state goes broke in February or March.
