Sundays Political Shootout.
Well, not a Shootout. This one is going to be different. I describe the participants in another place on this blog. This Sunday guests will be State Rep. Jack Franks, chairman of the State Government Operations committee of the House and Ron Gidwitz, whose race for the GOP governorship I enjoyed (I hope he thinks it was worth the effort and money). Both of them who met only once before, on my earlier show, are interested in Zero-Based Budgeting for state government. I have the very strong feeling that no matter who is elected this time, he/she will throw up his/her hands and go for an income tax hike. Both Franks and Gidwitz dont want that to happen and both believe that only with the implementation of Zero-Based can we avoid it. So it wont be the usual zinging each other back and forthbut it will be exciting, from two men who have dared to challenge the conventional wisdom. Do tune innext Sunday at 8 on WLS-AM. I dont think theyll be disputing much because both are fiscal conservativesbut youll want to get in your two cents!
