Roskam Statement on Gov. Pat Quinn’s DNC Speech

From the office of Rep. Peter Roskam (R, Illinois 6th District)…

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Peter Roskam issued the following statement in response to Illinois Governor Pat Quinn’s remarks at the Democratic National Convention:

“Having Pat Quinn speak at the DNC is ironic considering that Illinois is a classic ‘what not to do’ example of governing. While our neighbors in Iowa, Wisconsin and Indiana have pulled themselves out of dire fiscal straits, Illinois’ credit was downgraded yet again last week, giving it the second-worst rating in the nation. Last month, the unemployment rate in Illinois jumped to nearly 9 percent, and has been higher than the national average since December 2010. If Democrats and President Obama are looking for leadership advice from Pat Quinn, they’re in bigger trouble than I thought.”
