No Politicians Allowed

The Responsible Budget Coalition's Wednesday rally could draw as many as 15,000 participants -- all in support of generating new revenue to solve the state budget crisis.  It may be the biggest rally in Springfield history and there are sure to be a wide array of speakers addressing the crowd.  But according to the Illinois Federation of Teachers' Dave Comerford, one group won't be invited to the podium:

“No politician will be speaking at the rally. They’ve done enough talking without acting,” said Comerford. “They need to hear from us.”
