Governor Pat Quinn Wednesday used his veto power to eliminate salaries for Illinois legislators. Quinn says until lawmakers fix the state's pension problem, they shouldn't get paid.
On Illinois' $100 billion unfunded pension liability Quinn has been setting deadlines for more than a year.
Until now, there haven't been any direct consequences for lawmakers when they've blown each of those deadlines.
Quinn changed that today in a big way.
