#CNNisFakeNews no mention of Madigan in Illinois budget debacle piece

Yes, CNN is fake news. For the latest evidence, read the article from CNN Money by Matt Megan, "How Illinois became America's most messed-up state." Only one Illinois politician is mentioned by name, Republican governor Bruce Rauner, his campaign slogans, by the way, were "Bring Back Illinois and "Shake Up Springfield." No mention from Megan of the undertaker of ILL-inois, House Speaker Michael Madigan (D-Chicago).

I hate to keep repeating myself, but some people are either rock dumb or hopelessly biased. Rauner has been governor for 30 months. Madigan, who devilishly draws Illinois' legislative districts, has been state House speaker for 32 of the last 34 years. Nothing gets voted on in the House unless he approves it. The Democratic Despot is also chairman of the state Democratic Party.

Until six months ago Madigan's Democrats had a supermajority in both chambers of the General Assembly. Madigan could have got any budget that he wanted passed even if Rauner vetoed it. The Dems still have a supermajority in the state Senate.

CNN is fake news.
