From Mike Jacobs’ long time pal Rich Miller, who is a consistent cheerleader for tax increases at his Capitolfax.com blog, whining that nothing could possibly be cut from the budget that wouldn’t hurt the downtrodden, kids, old people, etc.
Ooops! It seems Illinois Mirror checked the budget line by line and discovered that Miller’s company has been sucking taxpayer $$$$ to the tune of $100K over the last three years to pay for his $500 a pop gossip sheet. Sweet!
When confronted with this information, Miller didn’t deny the numbers or getting taxpayer $$$ for his “newsletter”. Instead, he launched into this hilarious non sequitur:
And if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Period.
Looks like Miller has spent too much time in the Springfield insiders insides.
The best part? Miller immediately took off for “spring break”.
Gentle readers, you can’t make this stuff up!
