From AFSCME 31:

Pension-cutting Senate Bill 16 has passed the Illinois Senate with 31 senators voting yes, 22 voting no and 6 not voting. The bill now goes to the House.

All but six Senate Republicans voted wrong. Only these Republicans voted right: Anderson, Bivins, McCann, Fowler, Rezin and Schimpf.

In all, 16 Senate Democrats did the right thing and voted no. But the following 15 Senate Democrats voted wrong, to cut pensions of state and university employees and teachers: President Cullerton, Harmon, Hunter, Koehler, Landek, Link, Martinez, McGuire, Morrison, Muñoz, Raoul, Sandoval, Silverstein, Steans and Trotter.

It’s more important than ever to call your State Representative at 888-912-5959. Tell them to VOTE NO on SB 16, HB 4027 or any pension-cutting bill.

  1. Fired off an email to the completely unscrupulous and skeezy John Cullerton yesterday.

    Just to let him know his treachery is noted.

    Im sure my message will be drowned out by the $25000 or so check IEA will send him later in the year so they can have a seat at the table

  2. For decades, the same old shit of underfunding the pension systems has been hitting the fan in such mass to the point of drowning the entire State in the smelly mess of our lawmakers’ creation. Now these useless blobs of human (?) DNA, particularly J. Cullerton, Harmon, Madigan, and Flynn Currie, — senior leadership in the General Assembly and of the State’s Democratic Party, my party, who ought to know better, have proven again their utter lack of imagination and worse, their eternally slavish devotion to Einstein’s definition of “insanity” — doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. (Never mind the General Assembly Republicans who, with one or two exceptions, have completely lost their marbles and their collective soul, if they had any in the first place.)

    What didn’t our lawmakers get in the historic Kanerva and Heaton v. Quinn decisions that cutting pensions and benefits of state employees is “unconstitutional” as in, you know, “illegal?” There is no shade of gray in “unconstitutional” or “illegal.”

    What do these banal, colorless, visionless creatures of our General Assembly see when they look at themselves in the mirror? — Clearly, everything but their resemblances to the ugliest, most destructive monsters of Hollywood’s horror genre! At least, the Hollywood monsters are make-believe.

    We live in a country and in a state that are both run by the criminally depraved, perverted, or insane — J. Cullerton, Don Harmon, Madigan, Flynn Curry, plus the Springfield vampire known as “Duck Tape Bruce” who hangs by day from the rafters of the governor’s mansion with the help of “duct tape” and prowls by night with his dark money to prey on his victims, the people of Illinois. Speaking of Einstein’s definition of “insanity,” I’m getting tired of writing about the same pension cut shit during every session of the Illinois General Assembly which indicates that I, unlike too many members of the General Assembly, still have a far bigger grip on sanity than they do.

  3. How easy it is for some to just try to steal the pensions of hard working underpaid (in most circumstances) state employees.

    Many of these university employees haven’t seen a penny in raises in the past almost 6 years.

    Don’t count on ever getting reelected if you don’t do the right thing.
