Fran Eaton: Little room for governor to not anger public unions - Southtown Star

Fran’s conclusion from a great column comparing Illinois and Wisconsin.

We live in strange times. Quinn faces a budget crisis and rising debt, a considerable amount of which stems from some of his biggest campaign contributors — public sector unions. Meanwhile, Walker boasts of no income tax increase, lower property taxes and a balanced fiscal 2013 budget.

And who between Quinn and Walker is facing historical political pressure and the possible removal from office? It’s not Quinn.
