Coalition Signals Huge Job Losses Under Quinn Plan


The Responsible Budget Coalition says Illinois would lose almost 38,000 jobs and millions of dollars in economic activity related to health care under Governor Pat Quinn's plan to cut Medicaid.

 

Quinn wants to cut Medicaid spending by $2 billion.

 

Meanwhile, Quinn is still tweaking his pension reform plan, telling several newspaper editorial boards around the state that provisions like a higher retirement age would be phased in, to avoid a mass exodus of workers heading into early retirement to avoid the stricter proposed rules.
