lube up because looks like madigan just got his supermajority back in the house, the senate already is supermajority, and JB just won governors office. highest property taxes in the nation are about to get higher, and state income tax is about to become 'progressive'.

Progressive income tax would take a while to pass a constitutional amendment, so most likely in the meantime is just a higher flat tax (not sure how much they can do legally to have hehe deductions on the back end that make it effectively a progressive tax)

Flipped two house seats.

Part of the issue is that the ILGOP is so comically terrible that there is no offset to the Democrats. Rauner was an abject failure and took the rest of the ticket down with him.

Illinois has had republican senators and (other) governors in its not too distant past and is clearly willing to do so again. They just need to me more like Peter Fitzgerald (who would have been easily re-elected had he run again this cutting off Obama from ever becoming a US senator or POTUS because he never would have run) and less like the 120 sps Bruce Rauner.

Makes sense, was there anything Rauner could have done? Seems like an impossible job to go against Madigan and the dem state legislature. The whole situation is completely fucked and its hard to see anything happening except higher taxes driving more people out leading to larger deficits.

Madigan was the other problem. Rauner was outclassed and outmaneauvered. Madigan is the all time master without equal in political skill in 20th century American political history and I’m not overstating it (as anyone that pays attention knows). Not saying he wields this power positively but it is unparallled power, to be sure.

He could have realized that do make any change in Illinois, he would need at least two terms and perhaps even outlast Madigan. This would’ve meant play ball and do some compromise activity. Especially so given the supermajority in both chambers of the GA.

Instead, he went scorched earth, didn’t pass a budget (which led to junk bond status lol), fired his entire staff twice at the behest of his 85-IQ wife, and waged a war that was the equivalent of Lesotho taking on the US. People forget that the voters really did give Rauner a chance - they voted him in over an incumbent dem (albeit an inept one). Rauner just really did absolutely everything wrong and accomplished nothing (though he will count Janus as his success).

You’re not wrong. People are leaving Illinois. The situation is fucked. He exacerbated it, however, no matter how good his intentions were. He took a 3 year PE rip and run approach to a situation that needs charisma, tact and care (and longevity).
