First Lady’s group blasts Gov. Rauner for “devastating policies”

Thursday, Aug 27, 2015

* Oof


Hat tip: MrJM.

…Adding… As correctly noted by a commenter, the last person who called Gov. Rauner’s CCAP rule change “devastating” was moved out of her position in the administration and ended up retiring.

    Must make for some cold evening in that household. Wow.


  2. - Team Sleep - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:25 am:

    “Diana - I’m staying in the Governor’s Mansion tonight. I don’t care if it has a leaky roof. It’s for the best. Honest.”


  3. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:25 am:

    - @MisterJayEm -, best/funniest Twitter around.

    To the Post,

    As I look at the call to action at the bottom, I warm up my handy-dandy email machine…

    “Dear - Louis G. Atsaves -,

    Please remind ‘Ounce’ that governors don’t own.

    Sincerely,

    OW”


  4. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:27 am:

    HBO - “Dad’s Home State” - Season 1, Episode 39.

    Bruce edits and approves IllinoisGO mailers. Diana edits and approves “Ounce” newsletter. Diana’s state employee tries to stop both mailers. Nuding gives Arduin empty boxes for her office, “ck” looks for Arduin successes for press release. Comedy, 57 minutes.


  5. - Former Hoosier - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:28 am:

    I’m sure this is making for strained relations on the home front. But, if Diana is going to remain the head of the Ounce, then she’s got to wear her big girl pants. Her job is to advocate for the populations her agency serves. I believe she has a conflict of interest by remaining the head of that agency.


  6. - Concerned - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:28 am:

    I would pay money to be a fly on the wall in the Governor’s mansion when the calls start pouring in!!

    OW, this would seem to be tailor-made for one of your descriptions of an episode of the ongoing sit-com that is the Governor’s office!


  7. - Concerned - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:29 am:

    And there it is! Excellent!


  8. - Grundall County - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:31 am:

    When is the Diana Rauner press conference?


  9. - Concerned - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:32 am:

    Where else have we heard the word “devastating” when describing the impact of the Governor’s rule changes on the vulnerable?


  10. - Mama - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:33 am:

    If IL could afford free education for 0 - 12, would that solve the child care problem?


  11. - Mama - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:36 am:

    - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:27 am:
    HBO - “Dad’s Home State” - Season 1, Episode 39.
    Thanks for the laugh.


  12. - Wordslinger - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:37 am:

    –Where else have we heard the word “devastating”…–

    And look what happened to her.

  14. - Mama - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:39 am:

    Can the governor rescind the CCAP policy changes, or does the legislature have to rescind the governor’s new policy?


  15. - Mama - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:42 am:

    This appears to be an emotional ad to get people to donate money to the Ounce org.. No?


  16. - Former Hoosier - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:47 am:

    Mama- the action item is “Contact Gov. Bruce Rauner today…” (as seen at the end of the Action Alert.) Emotional, yes- but it’s not an ad. It’s a publication that appears to go to subscribers. And, the emotion is well placed.


  17. - Norseman - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:47 am:

    Rauner: But honey, the kids will be remembered at the country club for their sacrifice to the union busting cause.


  18. - Linus - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:47 am:

    Mama, Rauner’s DHS made the policy changes. In other words, the Governor taketh away, and the Governor can giveth back.


  19. - Pot calling kettle - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:48 am:

    Why the assumption that this policy causes a strain in the governor’s personal life? Why not ask whether or not either of the Rauners actually care about what the impact is on the poor? During the election, many people disregarded the campaign spots with the Mrs. Rauner as a cover. This is evidence that they were. Why should this mailer be viewed as anything different?

    If he thinks Mrs. Rauner really cares about this, didn’t the Governor bring it up before he approved it? It seems unlikely that an “uncomfortable” discussion is just now taking place in the Rauner home. It either took place weeks ago (and they made a decision and moved forward), or it never did and never will (and they don’t really care).


  20. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:49 am:

    This is just another attempt by Mike Madigan and the First Ladies he controls to raise taxes and make our economy less competitive…


  21. - Juvenal - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:51 am:

    Mama: it’s a call-to-action to bombard the governor with phone calls.

    To The Post: I’ve heard that staff once keen on Diana Rauner have been chirping about her at the watering holes. Now I think we know why.

    That said, is Carville can make it work, so can the governor.


  22. - hisgirlfriday - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:51 am:

    If Mrs. Rauner can’t even use her special access as First Lady to protect programs such as this why would anyone donate to an organization run by her and expect it to be an effective advocate with this governor?


  23. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:52 am:

    Hi Rich,

    Today’s statement represents yet another week of Speaker Madigan and the first ladies he controls trying to claw their way to a massive tax hike by hamstringing the state with an unbalanced budget.

    Thanks!
    ck


  24. - Anonymiss - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:56 am:

    P.S. union bosses status quo Chicago pensions.

    Best,
    ck


  25. - @MisterJayEm - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:57 am:

    The first lady would never forgive me if I didn’t share the link to their Contact the Governor page: http://www.theounce.org/what-we-do/policy/action-alerts/ask-governor-to-rescind-CCAP-changes/?=CCAP

    – MrJM


  26. - thunderspirit - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:59 am:

    ==Hi Rich,

    ck ==

    Stellar. :-D

    I earnestly hope that this is having zero repercussions in the Rauners’ personal lives. To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, just because we may disagree about politics or religion or philosophy is no reason to not be friends with one another.


  27. - Wensicia - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:00 am:

    “Diana, these action alerts have to stop or I’ll take away your $100,000 Chief of Staff.”


  28. - Flynn's Mom - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:01 am:

    OW, I can’t wait for the Dad’s Home State episode when BVR attends the annual Ounce fundraiser with Diana.


  29. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:03 am:

    That will have the disclaimer;

    “This week, a very special ‘Dad’s Home State’… “


  30. - GA Watcher - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:04 am:

    Aside from the erstwhile Rich Miller, I’ve never seen any other media outlets pick up on the First Lady’s differences of opinion with the Governor on the issues for which Ounce advocates. Kudos to Rich.


  31. - Skeptic - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:06 am:

    “The kids should just get a job.”


  32. - Anonymous - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:07 am:

    Waiting for Bruce to force Diana to retire ala Saterfield.


  33. - Norseman - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:09 am:

    If you can’t depend upon the governor’s wife to help you with your cause who can you depend on.


  34. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:10 am:

    ===Aside from the erstwhile Rich Miller===

    This report of my demise is greatly exaggerated.


  35. - Anonin' - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:16 am:

    Did you block the leaky roof room, WingMan and Mr. Reboot item? You must have dirty mind


  36. - Juvenal - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:22 am:

    === This report of my demise is greatly exaggerated. =

    LOL

    There’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there’s usually only one thing you can do.


  37. - Loop Lady - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:24 am:

    This is just too cute…why isn’t this a conflict of interest on some level?

    What if Patti Blagojevich and Rod had this type of professional relationship? Durkin et al would be screaming bloody murder if Rod did not defund the group…


  38. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:27 am:

    - Loop Lady -

    You’re asking the wrong question.

    The question needing asking is “Ounce” to Mrs. Rauner;

    “Can you, or can’t you, help with your husband?”

    As “bad” as Diana may look for Bruce, you can make a case Bruce is making Diana seem… ineffective.


  39. - Robert the Bruce - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:36 am:

    ===Contact Gov. Bruce Rauner today…===

    Perhaps someone in your organization might have an easier way of contacting him than I do.


  40. - Triple fat - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:40 am:

    47th Ward 10:49 GREAT POST!!! I love it.


  41. - Juvenal - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:42 am:

    To OW’s point:

    Board members and CEOs are expected to leverage their personal relationships.

    Perhaps board member Ms. Helen Zell could make a few calls…one to her husband, one to ILGO?


  42. - Pot calling kettle - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:43 am:

    I’m still wondering…is there conflict, or is it political cover. “Gosh, I’m doing all I can.”


  43. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:50 am:

    - Pot calling kettle -,

    If it’s just window dressing that the First Lady is ineffective because the Governor won’t fall victim to conflicts, why would “Ounce” … want… to be a “prop” for Gov. Rauner and his integrity?

    The point the First Lady wanted to stay shouldn’t be to give my husband “conflict of interest cover at the cost of a group I advocate for… for free.”

    The crux of this all is;

    Is it worth it for “Ounce”, the Governor, and Mrs. Rauner to dance around the relationships and influences as “Ounce” actually faces real problems from a real Administration?

    It’s hubris and ego… and math… all at play.

  47. - Amazing - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:54 am:

    BR is a cruel person. The first lady must know this.


  48. - Mama - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:56 am:

    It appears almost everyone ‘The Responsible Budget Coalition’ represents is on the governor’s hit list.


  49. - Mama - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 11:59 am:

    ““Can you, or can’t you, help with your husband?”
    My guess is she ‘can’t help’ your org with Bruce.


  50. - X-prof - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 12:07 pm:

    I just can’t figure how Diana rationalizes her Ounce position statements with accepting a $100,000 / yr chief of staff paid on the state’s dime. Couldn’t that money be put to better use at places like OPF?

    For that matter, does anyone know what duties her CoS actually performs?


  51. - Anonymous - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 12:17 pm:

    Sounds like an episode of “House of Carhartts.”


  52. - Willie Stark - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 12:40 pm:

    Yes, the organization “speaks” but the President stays silent. How is it tenable for the Board of Directors to allow her to hide when any other president would have an obligation to speak out? And, if she can’t play an active, visible role at the time of the organization’s greatest need, why is she in that position? Best to go back to smiling and vouching for Bruce in adorable, feel-good TV spots and dreaming of the White House (or at least Naval Observatory).


  53. - Underwood - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 12:56 pm:

    From that HBO special- Finally, a frustrated Bruce tells Diana a hard truth he thinks she needs to hear: “Ounce is important, yes,” he says, referring to the Ounce of Prevention Fund, the foundation she runs, “but it doesn’t come close to what we’re trying to accomplish.”


  54. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 12:58 pm:

    - Underwood -

    (Pause)… It’s a comedy.


  55. - Underwood - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 1:00 pm:

    Those quotes are from the actual show. Just changed the names. Thought it was ironic.

    From: Bruce Rauner, Governor
    To: All department heads
    Subject: Appointments for Friday, August 28, 2015

    Governor Bruce Rauner today announced he has appointed Donna Arduin as the new First Lady of the State of Illinois.

    “Donna is a superstar and brings a unique set of qualifications and record of great successes in states like Kansas to the office of First Lady,” said Governor Rauner. “Together, we will Turnaround Illinois for job creators and wrest the stranglehold away from Speaker Madigan and the politicians he controls.”

    Arduin most recently served as the governor’s budget guru. She replaces Diana Rauner, who has served in the role of First Lady since January 2015. Governor Rauner wishes Diana all the best in her future endeavors. She will continue in her role as Governor Rauner’s wife from a remote hamlet in the Appalachians.

    47,

    Well played my friend. Very well played! I guess the corollary would be Diana Rauner and the governor she clearly doesn’t control…


  60. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 2:53 pm:

    If I get waivers for “Dad’s Home State” signed, I’ll try to bring you these, and other episodes, real soon…

  62. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Aug 27, 15 @ 10:04 pm:

    This explains why the Rauners have dinner in public places. Plenty of witnesses.
