Democrats Insist Grand Bargain Isn’t Dead
(Springfield, IL) — Democrats in the Illinois Senate aren’t giving up just yet. Leaders say the so-called ‘grand bargain’ is still alive despite yesterday’s collapse. Not a single Republican voted for the bargain’s reforms, they say Democrats are rushing the proposals. The idea is to trade a series of tax increases for some business reforms and come to terms on a budget. Democratic Senate President John Cullerton said he thinks there’s still a chance to find an agreement.
