This week on the Sunday Spin:

Bob Secter, director of investigations for the Better Government Association, joined the show for a full hour.  For the first half hour, Rick and Secter talk about the politics of Washington, 20 new ATF agents coming to Chicago as Trump’s response to the city’s violent crime and yes, of course, Trump’s tweets. Then Rick and Secter move on to discuss all things Springfield as lawmakers work over the holiday weekend to see if the state’s historic budget impasse, now in its third year, shows any sign of ending.

After that, Rick speaks to Illinois State Comptroller Susana Mendoza. The Comptroller reveals how bad the state’s checkbook really is–particularly after a federal court ruling Friday that requires the state to pay more to providers of Medicaid.
