Illinois: Rauner creates task force to consolidate local government

Niles Towship Building, Skokie
The Land of Lincoln's reform governor is a real marvel.

From AP:
Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner has signed an executive order creating a task force looking at streamlining government functions.

Rauner made the announcement in DuPage County on Friday. County officials in recent years eliminated a fire district and a sanitary district as part of an effort to save more than $100 million over the next 20 years.
The task forec--which will be chaired by Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti, needs to take a hard look at that nest of sinecure--township government.

More decrees from King Bruce? Why can't he work with the legislature? Isn't it time to start talking impeachment over his usurpation of the power the people have vested in their representatives?

The governor is only following the law--see the SCOTUS decision--Harris v. Quinn

Anonymous #1: Please express the same displeasure of Mr. Obama and *his* Executive Orders - then you'll have standing.

LOL! You're the EO fetishists. You're the chumps with their hair on fire over them! It was all tyranny and crybabying when the President issued one. But now they're all good. Magically delicious, even. Until the President issues another. Then you babies will be back to bawling, like the silly, hypocritical bitches that you are. It's funny how that went right over your dim brow! Thanks for the laugh, nitwit.

As Ann Landers used to say to troubled people who wrote to her, "Seek therapy."

Ann Landers? LOL! You old white men are really "with-it"! I'll have to find some Farmer's Almanacs from the '40s and get myself up to speed!
