Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed the budget that begins July 1. The spending plan relies on billions of dollars in federal aid that havent materialized, keeps spending level from the current year despite revenue losses and cost increases from the COVID-19 pandemic and gives Medicaid access to seniors who are undocumented residents.
In a statement, the governor also urged the federal government to pass a funding plan to give state and local governments billions of dollars in an effort to cover parts of the states $42.9 billion spending plan...

Good luck wit dat, Prickster...
Sure he can do that. Set the budget for any amount you would like. They won’t have any money in their account though.
Democrats are incapable of governing.
This idiot is betting on a Biden presidency.
“They can’t be out of money. They still have checks left in their checkbook”
All these blue states are counting on Biden bailing them out for their irresponsibility. For that reason alone Biden must be defeated.
He lives in a make believe world.
The list of corrupt Illinois Governors goes back a long way - Remember Otto Kerner? But Putzker is the most corrupt of them all. He is also the richest.
If he survives a full four year term, history will not be kind to reign of Fred Flintstone.
Old news in illinois. The state constitution requires a balanced budget each year, so Blago (remember him?) used to refinance old debt and count it as revenue. Playing games that journalism majors don’t understand is how democrats keep their reputation for fiscal responsibility.
Wow - can he do that ???
He & his wife and their families can all pony up from their personal multi-billion dollar fortunes.
Sell the planes. Sell the excess mansions and estates. Sell all but 2 cars. Sell the jewelry, the paintings, the antiques, the commercial real estate.
Follow the money. Pritzkers have a lot of it. I’ll bet, if you add up the wealth of the entire family, it’s over $42B.
Well, the battle cry in Michigan and Wisconsin is, vote democrat and pay Illinois’ debt.
Who wants to pay for New York, California, New Jersey and Illinois’ reckless spending. If you vote for Biden then Wisconsin will.
Well,governor Fatass announced today that our state isn’t ready to move to phase 4.(we have 5,most states have3).He still expects us to wear masks in public and can’t have a sitdown meal except under a tent. All the while he hides like a coward in Lake Geneva,Wisconsin,which is an open state.
So when Chicago and/or Illinois run out of money, start auctioning off politicians and their relatives, heirs, and assigns, in payment of the debt.
Sure, the rich will still own the politicians: but this time, it will be literally, and they will no longer have spending authority or the power to pass corrupt laws.
The only thing selling well in Chicago is body bags and bandages. I wish someone would buy one for the mayor, Extra Large size. I’m sure his heart is going to go the way things are going. By! Don’t forget to take your asbestos underwear. Where you are going, you’ll need at two pairs at a time.
More criminal activity by racist democrats.
A hope and a prayer, fairy dust and unicorns are more in the cards, prickster
I assume this is an illegal diversion of my federal tax dollars - theft. Democrats disgust me.
