In one of the extremely rare instances that Governer Quinn actually did something he said he was going to do, Quinn vetoed the two year extension for health insurance contracts, and muscled a few of the most popular downstate health insurance companies out of the government mix. I can't help but think of the council meeting in Blazing Saddles where they read the telegram to the governor about the new sheriff. Just replace the word "sheriff" with "health insurance contracts" in the telegram, and enjoy. I'd post a link but there is some foul language. You can find it yourself - you tube council meeting blazing saddles.
By the way, he vetoed a bill that passed 37-12 in the Senate and 98-15-3 in the house. That's the government definition of 'overwhelming.'
The only good news is that maybe, just maybe, some of the government union voters who put him in office will realize that Quinn cares NOTHING for you. As he continues to appoint his political buddies and campaign contributors and their family members to jobs that pay hundreds of thousands a year and require less than part-time attendance or work, he vetoes a bill that allows you to keep your health insurance. And not even indefintely, just for a couple of years until this whole bidding process can be done in the light of day. This is not good government.
