"Another day of games. Another day of waiting..."

On the floor of the Illinois House, Republican Leader Tom Cross implored the chamber’s majority to call off what he called “games” and a “charade” relating to the state’s pension crisis.
House Republicans refused to participate in a publicity stunt on the House floor today, instead choosing to ask for a Committee of the Whole meeting, one during which members could exchange ideas and work toward a real solution to the pension crisis which is costing taxpayers $17 million per day.
