Never Underestimate The Stupidity Of The Illinois Public

Republican State Sen. Dale Risinger announced on Friday that he will not run for re-election in ’12 and may not fill out his term.

Risinger explains why he no longer wants to keep beating his head against the Democrat wall:

“I thought the people of Illinois would have been fed up with the overspending of the budget for the last eight years and would want a change, but the truth of the matter is, we still have the Democrats in control of everything and have put us in the spot that we’re in . . . It’s going to be a continuous battle to try and keep the spending under control even with the tax increase.”

I’d say ESPECIALLY with the tax increase.

The Democrats who got us into this mess have no idea how to clean it up—and have no desire to do so, even if they had a clue, as we’ve seen with the slew of idiotic Democrat legislation this session.

But the truth is that the Democrats don’t control Illinois government, Big Labor public employee unions do. There is no chance the Democrats will ask their powerful union paymasters to cede power for the greater good. Unions want one thing and that is MORE. All Quinn and the Democrats can do is say “Yes, Boss”.

  1. Weak Republicans such as Risinger complain they can’t get anything done, but if they can’t, why not? Are these Republicans so ineffective that they can’t convince the public to demand change. Fact is Risinger and the rest of these Republicans are as much to blame as the D’s. Risinger secured a public pension, but was unable or unwilling to get anything done for the people who appointed him to office. Who knows – maybe the next appointed Republican politician will be more effective?

  2. Very good point littlebit90. These do nothing complainers sure suck up at the public trough. It is time to pith in or quit. It is good to see Risinger is quitting. Maybe the Republicans can appoint someone that want to get something done and work with the process.
    You do not hear people say that they were ineffective and quit because of it. I respect Risinger for realizing his limitations. Hopefully he can actually follow through on his promise to quit.
