So, during last night's State Of The State address, Governor Pat Quinn, currently running for re-election says that, in order to prevent any cuts to state programs and operations, the temporary tax increase that was passed about four years ago needs to be made permanent.

House Speaker Mike Madigan (a.k.a. The Velvet Hammer) said afterwards he would call a special session this spring to make the tax increase permanent.

Everyone was expecting this four years ago, and everyone is still acting surprised.

People of Illinois bitch about getting screwed by the politicians THEY KEEP RE-ELECTING.

Some say we get the government we deserve.

No.  I'm getting the government YOU deserve.  I vote against these people.
