The Republican Governors Association is running a new attack ad in Chicago blaming Gov. Pat Quinn for the high unemployment rate and the state's massive deficit. Watch below:
The Quinn campaign responded to the ad in a fundraising e-mail this morning:
This week, Senator Bill Brady made it clear that - when it comes to Illinois’ economy - all he’s ready to do is lay blame.
Brady’s new ad, funded by the national Republican Governors Association, blames Governor Quinn alone for the economic troubles of our state. No mention of the national recession and the backwards policies that created it.
Perhaps that’s because Bill Brady’s only ‘plan’ for Illinois relies on the same George Bush economic policies that got us into this in the first place. Tax cuts for the rich, less accountability for corporations, and disastrous 10% across-the-board cuts for everyone else.
