Illinois’ governor is once again complaining that there likely won’t be a federal bailout coming. Governor JB Pritkzer yesterday said news that there won’t be any more coronavirus stimulus talks could mean trouble for the state. Pritzker wants at least five-billion-dollars from Washington D.C. to cover the gaps in Illinois’ state budget. The governor says this shouldn’t be a red state or blue state issue. President Trump yesterday said he won’t negotiate with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi until after the election.
