Steve Rauschenberger was a Republican State Senator (from Elgin) from 1992 to 2006, and Steve was known at the time as the most knowledgeable legislator about the IL budget.  Tonight's  program airs in its usual 8:30 pm time slot in the City on Cable Ch. 21

Steve Rauschenberger (now a Principal at Rauschenberger Partners, helping national companies comply with state regulations)  debates and discusses with show host Jeff Berkowitz whether Illinois is one of the three most corrupt states in the country, whether the 2011 income tax increase should "Sunset," whether AG Lisa Madigan should be faulted for ignoring public corruption, whether WTTW is fair and balanced, whether Paul Vallas favors school vouchers, whether CPS is failing several hundred thousand students,  whether we can cut Medicaid, education and state employee pensions while still being "humane," whether Steve will run for the State House seat given up by Keith Farnham after the Feds confiscated former Democratic State Rep. Farnham's computers as part of a  "Child  Trafficking," investigation and who will win the IL Governor's race in November, 2014.

************************************

Jeff Berkowitz: You were in state politics for 14 years as a state senator, what did you learn?

Steve Rauschenberger: ...Illinois is a clear exception. Most states...are recovering-- their unemployment is down, their tax revenues are up; they have balanced budgets; they are out of debt. Illinois is an exception.

**********************************************

Steve Rauschenberger: If you are going to get out of the financial problems we have in the state of Illinois, you are going to do it by growing the economy, by putting people to work successfully in good jobs, and you don’t do that when your Speaker of the House runs around and threatens a millionaires tax,  when the Governor  talks about [raising taxes]-
