Get Ready For Trouble

Here in Illinois, Mike "The Velvet Hammer" Madigan controls the state.  He's the chair of the Democrats.

He redistricted the states, costs R five seats.

His D's won another four.

When the new state Congress is sworn in, he will control a veto-proof majority.

He wants his daughter, AG Lisa Madigan, to run for governor.  To help with this, rumors are circulating that he is going to use the lame duck state Congress to make the Quinn/Madigan 67% income tax increase permanent so it won't become an issue in 2014.  And even if he doesn't do it, he has a veto-proof majority in both houses now.  It will go through.

The people of Illinois weren't paying attention, and still aren't paying attention.

They deserve to get screwed.
