Finally, someone willing to state the obvious!

Reposted from the IllinoisTeaParty Youtube Page:

FINALLY, Illinois State Representative Mike Bost has finally had enough of politics as usual in the State of Illinois and wants to know why they don’t READ THE BILL. Bost erupted on the House floor Tuesday afternoon, after Mike Madigan and the party leadership called for a vote on a new pension reform proposal.

House Speaker Mike Madigan had only introduced the bill that same morning. It passed on a six to three vote and moved to the House floor for discussion within a couple of hours.

The bill is hundreds of pages long, and Bost says lawmakers should not be voting on a proposal without first reading it.

    All of us property owners in Illinois owe Mr. Bost in a big way. He has singularly prevented the ‘Good-ole-Boys’ from dumping the entire $83 Billion pension debt onto the school districts. Except for the Chicago School District, of course, which just so happens doesn’t belong to the same system the rest of the districts are forced into.
