Winger statement on unbalanced budget vote

Calls for a balanced and responsible budget went unheeded this week by Illinois House Democrats who passed a budget that spends $4 billion more than the state receives in revenue. In response, State Representative Christine Winger issued the following statement:

“The residents of this state deserve more than this.  They called for bipartisan solutions in the last election, and are not getting what they asked for. Instead politics as usual prevailed and once again an unbalanced budget was adopted by the House majority.”

“It is shameful that the Constitutional provision requiring a balanced budget can be so blatantly disregarded by the majority party with no consequence.”
