Arghh! Gabel, Madigan, a corrupted state feeding off the sheeple of Illinois. Will write a blog soon! Can't wait 'til I'm out of here...ah, March.

imagine now the Dept. of Professional Regulation with one person to process every physician application for a new license and renewal every 3 years. It will take a year to get a license and to boot the price is going from $300 to $700. Hospitals and physician groups will not be able to function. Now I know the pols have bankrupted the state but are we now going to let them take it out on us. The General Assembly members should give up their salaries and benefits. No, actually they should be ridden out of the state on rails. And of course Gabel voted for Madigan. She will want something in return and whatever that may be, it won't be good for our district or the state.

The sole activity of House Democrats is to do what Madigan tells them on any important issue. We have elected another Madigan lackey, period.

Eric, good to see you haven't give up the fight.
