Democrats Mock Governor During State Of State Address
Illinois Democratic lawmakers mocked Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner during his State of the State Address today. They gave him a snarky 30-second standing ovation after Rauner said he plans to introduce a balanced budget proposal next month. The moment came during a speech in which Rauner stressed the importance of working cooperatively on a bipartisan basis. A partisan fight led to a two-year impasse in which there was no full state budget — freezing social services and public universities out of state money for months at a time.
