I tweeted Governor Pat Quinn and gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner to ask if they thought it would be easier to win the lottery or get a good paying job in Illinois. Here’s the conversation.
When I tweeted these guys, I did expect a response.
As you see, Rauner did not respond which is probably a good indication of what South Siders, or people who earn less than $10 dollars a year, can expect if he’s elected governor. We WILL be ignored.
When Quinn first responded, I was a little amused by his initial response. However, when I responded with stats and facts and he responded with that stupid answer, I was not happy.
After re-reading his response, I had to think about the fact that, again, this is what South Siders should expect if this guy gets in.
1) Your chances of winning the lottery will be better than getting a job – even if you don’t play the lottery.
2) You’ll probably get roundabout answers to your questions, if you get a response at all.
3) We will continue to get screwed if we don’t hold these people accountable.
So, as you can see, this upcoming governor’s race is purely a gamble. And based on the responses from these two candidate South Siders are going to lose regardless of who wins the race.
