Mike Frerichs Isn't Sure If He Should Save Taxpayer's Money As Treasurer And State Senator

Mike Frerichs isn't sure where he stands on how we can save Illinois taxpayer's over $10M annually.  He's been all over the place on the idea of 'combining' the offices of Illinois State Comptroller and Illinois State Treasurer. a State Senator, Mike Frerichs voted for it.  Then..he was suddenly against the merger:
During an interview on WBBM’s “At Issue”, Frerichs opposed merging the offices of state comptroller and treasurer, even though it would save taxpayer’s over $12 million annually.

Even more bizarre, Frerichs had voted for the merger in the past and even bragged about supporting it a few months ago. 
Mike Frerichs’ new-found opposition to streamlining these offices reveals a troubling lack of consistency and fortitude, which will cost Illinois taxpayers more despite already being victims of the Quinn/Frerichs tax and spend regime.
And...what did his hometown newspaper have to say about this about-face times two?
“But [Frerichs] clearly doesn’t know what he really thinks, and, when candidates don’t know what they believe, they say whatever seems convenient at the moment.”
