time for your questions

It's Friday so it's time for you to post what you would ask Governor Blagojevich.

Inspired by Archpundit:
Under what circumstances would Gov. Blagojevich accept a tax increase? Is it possible to create a tax system that addresses the underlying inequities? Is Gov. B. willing to raise taxes to fix inequities?
Reneging on deals:
Does the governor regret having gone back on verbal deals that he's made? Does he consider it humiliating to have to sign deals rather than to have members of the legislature take his word?
Borrowing against the future:
Under what circumstances does it make sense for a gov't entity to borrow against the future to pay for today's expenses? What makes this type of management short-sighted?
$3 million for immigrants:
How is this spending going to make a difference in peoples' lives?
Generational justice:
Is Gov. B. concerned that his budget cuts spending on universities (younger people) and shifts expenses to the future (taxing younger Illinoisans) to pay for bloated pension deals for people that are older and more wealthy?
Did Governonr B know the Tinley Park Mental Health Center was about to experience significant cuts when he told the Daily Southtown it would be "fully funded"?
Shifting burden to the property tax:
Did Governor B. think that he could shift the cost for pension sweeteners from the income tax to the property tax? Did he think this was wise policy? Wouldn't this have been catastrophic for many school districts and unaffordable for homeowners across the state?
Linda Freveletti:
Why did Gov. B's administration force the "Gaming" Board to hire Freveletti?
Tollway contracts:
Can Gov. B. think of any reason the developers would want to keep the identity of franchise owners secret that doesn't have anything to do with the ownership arrangement being politically embarrassing for Blagojevich and his administration?
Add your own.

Here's a link to last week.

Hopefully the site will keep growing.

Thanks for your encouragement "anonymous".

BTW The Inside Dope has some text I'd like to borrow.

All those who post comments are strongly encouraged to register with Blogspot in order to get a user name.
You can do so from the comment window. The name can be anything you want, and your anonymity is maintained. You can enter a user name each time you post, as long as it's the same one. Endless posts from "anonymous" are lame and get tedious in a hurry.
Adopt a user name. After all, how else can we tell who's writing these brilliant comments?
I reserve the right to delete "anonymous" posters, and if there are too many, I may go to a registered members only policy, which I hope to avoid.
