It's been 407 days since Quinn said he was "put on earth" to fix Illinois pension mess

Yesterday the Illinois Senate soundly defeated the House version of public-worker pension reform. The House has yet to vote on the Senate version. What are these mental midgets waiting for? The spring session ends in less then 24 hours.

If the General ASS-embly is waiting for guidance, good luck with that. It's been 407 days since Governor Pat Quinn made this asinine statement about the Prairie State's $100 billion in pension debt, which grows by $17 million per day.
But I'm here to solve it. I know that I was put on earth to get this done.
But Quinn isn't Kal-El, who was sent by his father, Jor-El, from Krypton to save us from ourselves.

And Quinn is part of the problem.

"They can be a great people, Kal-El, they wish to be." Jor-El said to his son in Superman: The Movie.

But Superman's dad knew nothing about Illinois.

UPDATE June 2: Not only has the General Assembly ended its spring session without passing pension reform, the legislature will now need a three-fifths majority to pass any bill.
