Mike Madigan is the midwife of Illinois' budget and pension fiasco. And now Lisa is joining in the fight.
From Fox Chicago:
Governor Bruce Rauner predicts Democrats will now move to force a total shutdown of Illinois state government, and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan confirms that.
She may, indeed, ask the Illinois Supreme Court to stop state employee paychecks.
Illinois is in the 10th month with no state budget and still the vast bureaucracy rolls on, spending billions of dollars more than it's taking in. Pain so far has been isolated, but the governor says it's about to spread.
"The attorney general's gonna try to cut off the pay to state workers to try to force a crisis, force a shutdown of government to try to force a tax hike," Rauner said.
