Emanuel on the Attack Against Rauner in Budget Battle

By Bill Cameron, WLS-AM 890 News

(CHICAGO)  On the state budget impasse, Mayor Emanuel was on the attack against Governor Rauner again this afternoon.

Emanuel now says Rauner’s word is no good and he can’t be trusted.  He says Rauner has flip flopped on three issues, including choice.

“To work and get a budget passed, you have to be trusted and I would tell you on this position, while you can just narrowly focus on the issue of choice which is a fair enough way to measure it, I think it goes to an issue of trust and the voracity of somebody’s word when they give it to you,” said Mayor Emanuel.

The mayor said he’d be pleasantly surprised if Rauner’s prediction of a school funding bill is near, but he doubts it.
