While most of us were preparing for the holidays over the weekend, Democratic Speaker of the House Mike Madigan continued the Blagojevich tradition of selling the state to his financial supporters by watering down pension reform legislation to appease Madigan’s labor union donors and political cronies.
On Sunday, Illinois House Democrats, A.K.A. Mike Madigan, moved legislation allowing his political pals & lobbyists to keep their inflated public pensions in the “Teacher for a Day, Pension for Life” scam.
“After 40 plus years of wielding virtually unchecked power, it is clear that Mike Madigan operates in an alternate universe,” said Illinois Republican Party Pat Brady. “In the face of national outrage and a federal criminal investigation into this specific pension abuse, Madigan continues to treat our tax dollars as his personal political piggy bank.“
“This stunt would make Rod Blagojevich blush,” added Brady.
