Quinn to unveil Illinois jobs plan Wednesday

| 1 Comment

Democrats need to produce jobs if they want to win in November. President Obama is asking Congress to approve new funding for infrastructure spending designed to create and save jobs. Obama will talk about his job proposals Wednesday in a Cleveland speech. Meanwhile, in Chicago on Tuesday, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn said--during a speech to a Rotary Club--that on Wednesday he will announce a "big" state jobs initiative.

An initiative for "state jobs" means more spending.

Quinn would do better supporting legislation designed to stimulate private sector jobs.

But then again, he's doing this only for the votes ... and November 2 is not far away.
