Business Leader Blasts Poe's Leadership Bid


One of the most vocal advocates of sweeping pension reform is warning Republicans not to back Raymond Poe as the next House GOP leader. 

 

Poe is hoping to replace Tom Cross as caucus leader.  But former Illinois Attorney General Ty Fahner is blasting Poe, accusing him of being too beholden to AFSCME and other public sector unions. 

 

Fahner tells Crain’s Chicago Business that any Republicans who support Poe should not expect political support from the state’s business community.  Poe has said the state should keep its pension promises… and has even suggested extending the state’s income tax increase to pay for pensions.
