“Illinois is hurting and it doesn’t have to be like this, we need the same kind of common sense that I learned and I know many of you learned on the farm on my family farm, you don’t spend more than you have, you don’t charge your customers and you don’t charge your tax payers more than they can afford, you tell the truth when somethings wrong and then you work hard to fix it.”

Bailey says if elected he will demand a budget that freezes spending and will exclude tax increases.
