It was my pleasure once again to join the Illinois Family Institute’s Dave Smith and Monte Larrick to record another edition of the Illinois Family Spotlight. Here was the IFI’s intro to the podcast:
A number of candidates for state representative have signed a pledge declaring they will not vote for Michael Madigan as Speaker of the House. In the first part of the show, Rep. Tom Morrison and guests state why voting against Madigan is so important for the future of Illinois. Afterword, John Biver (special projects coordinator at Illinois Family action) joins Monte and Dave to discuss Madigan, the pledge, and why fiscal reform is so desperately needed.
At the 13 minute mark I joined the show and basically ridiculed the concept — Mike Madigan wins — why would the Democrats abandon him?
