Herd on the Hill: Guest column by Senate Republican Whip Steve Kettering (Lake View)
Excerpted from this post at Herd on the Hill
When your act is not quite ready for Broadway, you see how it plays in Peoria. This week the Governor took his Bonding Play to stages around the state. The lights dim, the curtains part. The Governor rushes on stage. The set is the Capitol rotunda. The Governor is dressed in Sunday's best. The temperature is warm. He is sweating as he excitedly runs across stage, his right hand held high above his head, a credit card in hand. "I've got a higher limit, we can spend more he says to those assembled. We don't have to accept that Senate baby bond bill of only $175 million. It is not enough. We can do more."
