Mike Madigan and his puppets in the legislature are threatening to shut down schools unless they get a special $500 million bailout for Chicago public schools.
First, Madigan held the budget hostage to force through a 32% permanent income tax hike with no reforms.
Now, Madigan is holding our schoolchildren hostage to get a $500 million bailout for Chicago.
Madigan politicians are deliberately keeping the education funding bill from reaching Governor Rauner’s desk because Governor Rauner has vowed to fix the bill by removing the Chicago bailout and giving more money to school districts throughout the state.
Without releasing education funding, schools may not open on time.
Mike Madigan and his allies should stop trying to bailout Chicago and allow the school funding bill to reach Governor Rauner’s desk.
Time is ticking.
