Representative won't stand up to governor
Jun 12, 2018 5:04 PM -
State Rep. Grant Wehrli likes to blame Speaker Madigan for all the state's woes. His favorite saying is "what Madigan is best at …" Well, what Wehrli is best at is being absent from his job nearly one-fourth of the time. Maybe being absent so much, he would have time to read the state Constitution, which clearly defines that it is the governor's responsibility to present a balanced budget to the legislature -- not the opposite. Gov. Rauner was derelict in his duties for three years. He wants to campaign 24/7 and not govern. Grant Wehrli takes the governor's checks and dutifully shills for Rauner. Thirty out of the last 42 years, Illinois has been run by Republican governors. Either they have been utterly inept or they have been a part of the problem.
