Big Whoop Bankrupt Dems in Illinois

From the Sun Times this morning, covering lawmakers considering a massive tax increase, this on their belated attempts at fiscal rectitude described as "sweeping Medicaid reforms" by this Dem party organ (emphasis mine):

Meanwhile, the Senate overwhelmingly approved sweeping new changes to the state’s Medicaid program in a move backers said could save the state nearly $800 million over five years. [oh sure]

The plan, which passed 58-0 and with one voting present, now heads to the House. It would require Medicaid recipients for the first time to prove they are financially eligible for state-subsidized health care. They also would have to show they reside in Illinois.

The mind boggles. This is reform? This is not the norm?

This is Illinois.
