Tom Cross: Stop the Gimmicks and Give Us an Honest, Balanced Budget

The team over at Illinois Review has a statement from Illinois Treasurer's Candidate Tom Cross on Governor Quinn and what he's expecting during today's State of the State address:
“Illinois faces great challenges that require innovative policies and bold solutions. For far too long, our political leadership has relied on faux reforms and financial gimmicks – making our state’s fiscal situation go from bad to worse. As a result, Illinois has the nation’s worst budget deficit, over $7 billion in unpaid bills and we are unable to make the proper investments for our future in critical areas including education, neighborhood safety and job creation. Now, more than ever, we need real, substantive reforms that include an honestly balanced budget and a crack-down on the fraud and corruption that are fleecing Illinois taxpayers. The grave challenges confronting our state demand tangible, detailed and responsible proposals. I hope to hear those from Governor Quinn tomorrow afternoon.”
