John Tillman says it's understood why Democrats signed the budget and why Republicans went along with it. Speaker Madigan is in control of Illinois and the budget will spend 38.5 billion dollars when Illinois will only bring in 37 - 37.5 billion dollars. This means it is not a balanced budget. It was done to move on to the midterms. He says that Illinios needs to make a choice about voting for candidates that are for controlling spending and reducing taxes or to keep heading down the road doing the same thing like Thelma and Louise.
