Gov. Bruce Rauner's proposal to cut the state budget took a spectacular fall Wednesday in the Illinois House.
The new Republican governor's plan reduces Illinois' budget by $6 billion for the next fiscal year.
That means doing away with, or spending less, on everything from healthcare for the poor, autism services and support for older foster kids.
No GOP legislator has actually introduced a bill that would precipitate those cuts. So in a surprise move, the Democratic Speaker of the House, Michael Madigan, took it upon himself.
