Editor's Note 6/22/17

 That Gov. Bruce Rauner has a limitless capacity for audacity is well known. Yet his Tuesday evening plea for bipartisan “unity” while he is bankrolling ads attacking Democrats for supporting a tax plan similar to his own reached a new low. The governor calls for compromise, but so far he has been unwilling to compromise. One of his statements is true but way late: “Failure to act may cause permanent damage to our state that will take years to overcome.” Sen. Andy Manar, D-Bunker Hill, responds: “It’s as if Gov. Rip Van Winkle has awakened from a two-and-a-half-year nap to find the state he was supposed to manage is teetering on the brink of fiscal collapse.” –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
