Quinn's record on jobs abysmal

Posted6/17/2014 5:01 AM

Here we go again with more Democratic doozies. The governor's spokeswoman on June 8 said: "Unemployment is at its lowest point in more than five years. More people are working in Illinois today than when the governor took office." Not true! There are 18,500 fewer people working today than when Pat Quinn took office.

That is a good reason to dump him right? How about his presiding over the worst record in the Midwest for keeping people at work and creating jobs? Still like the governor? How about the job growth and tax cuts in Iowa, Indiana and Wisconsin? Our leader wants to increase taxes again. Time for a change.
