“Forgive me for being skeptical that Governor Rauner actually wants to see unity. He had a chance back in May and instead of forging a bipartisan budget compromise, he started to film attack ads,” Link said. “He still has the opportunity to support a balanced budget and reforms that were negotiated by members of his party and passed the Senate. That plan is awaiting action in the House.”
