Illinois Governor Pat Quinn: No Pay For Lazy Lawmakers

This is an article from the Chicago Tribune about governor Pat Quinn withholding paychecks from state representatives who cannot reach a deal on Illinois' pension problem. Quinn has been threatening this for weeks now and its nice to see that it finally happened. And while the cynic in me knows this is a move to get re-elected (and he really shouldn't be) I'm glad to see that he is hitting these reps where it hurts.
