Rauner: Send power back to the states

Tuesday, Jan 31, 2017

* From the annual Koch brothers summit

The government needs to move quickly, [Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley] told a large gathering of wealthy conservative and libertarian donors gathered in California, to send power back to the states and deregulate the economy. The problem is how slowly Washington, D.C. moves, and how the administration is tied up in bureaucracy. But if states, which know which regulations affect them hardest, sue, that would give the feds the power to simply settle and withdraw the reg.

“If a state would bring a suit against a regulation, it gives the federal government the opportunity to withdraw that regulation.”

This, he told donors and reporters, “will give the government the ability to move quickly on deregulation.” […]

“I like President [George W.] Bush but… look, they screwed it up,” Rauner told attendees, echoing a common center-right gripe that Bush did not do enough to decentralize government. “Send power back to the states.”

OK, but what are you gonna do with that power, governor? I mean, dude, you can’t even pass a budget with your reforms.

    With that power he will “BLAME MADIGAN”

    Bruce insists on continuing one of the sorrier charades an adult can do; refusing to adapt to the way things are and instead demanding more more more. You’re the governor, Bruce. Instead of saying why you can’t get anything done because of Mike Madigan or the Federal government or whatever boogeyman you want to blame, GET. SOMETHING. DONE.

    Nothing is more thrilling then anyone telling you what needs to be done when they can’t get anything of measurable accomplishment done within the subject.

    How will giving power back to the state get Rauner 60 and 30.

    Ah! The penny drops…

    Rauner’s hook?

    “If I get re-elected, I can have partial control of the map in Illinois, and after o bankrupt the ILDems and Labor in 2020, I’ll get my General Assembly, and Koch Brothers, get to finally eradicate Labor”

    Actually being grossly inept helps Rauner get his $7-10 million in dark/outside monies. It’s the long game.

    Actually, the is Rauner showing us all his genius.

    Now, Rauner only needs to derail the Dems Guv primary with this influx of “non-Rauner” cash for plausible deniability.

    Lot of big talk there at Governor Sleepover Camp. Nice break from all the focusin’.

    Must have been a safe place for the governor, not like those sleepover camps in Cleveland and DC that the governor was scared to go to because that Trump guy would be at them.

    Why the gratuitous slap at W?


  5. - Publius - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 2:31 pm:

    lol it’s funny how they cheer this but then states like Ohio then pass laws that take power away from cities

    They should say it as the mean it. Let the GOP/koch control the issue and they will decide which level of government controls it

    Example social issues run by locals when the fed is run by dem

    Minimum wage increases being passed by cities the GOP steps in and say no to local control

    They could care less about the people it’s all profit motive for them.

    === OK, but what are you gonna do with that power, governor? I mean, dude, you can’t even pass a budget with your reforms. ===

    Home run!!!!


  7. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 3:01 pm:

    Hello, Governor?, Um, more power to do what exactly? You can’t stir up enough effectiveness to qualify as ‘inept’.


  8. - Mama - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 3:19 pm:

    It sounds to me like feds plans to stop federal funds from going to the states. Correct me if I’m wrong. That would puts public schools in a world of pain.


  9. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 3:24 pm:

    Rauner asking for more state power is like Rod Blagojevich asking for an Obama cabinet position.


  10. - Anon - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 3:40 pm:

    ===OK, but what are you gonna do with that power, governor?===

    Withhold essential services until people give up their hard won rights.


  11. - Amalia - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 3:44 pm:

    well, if you live in a state where they don’t mess things up (hello Kansas) fine. Cali, NY, good. but so many states are a nightmare of right wing thought right now. not that the government of Donald/Stephen/Stephen is any better, but…..


  12. - Mama - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 3:49 pm:

    = - Anon - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 3:40 pm: =

    You two are on to something there.

    Plus I will add Rauner would be in charge of privatizing the entire state government with NO oversight and NO accountability. A win for his pockets.


  13. - Last Bull Moose - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 4:04 pm:

    This is the same Governor who said Medicaid should not go to block grants because the State of Illinois could not manage the change. States must demonstrate competence. Or at least claim competence.


  14. - Rabid - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 4:18 pm:

    Can’t claim your powerless if your not begging for power


  15. - DuPage Bard - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 7:28 pm:

    Sue the federal government to force them to do what you want!! Damn that Lisa Madigan for using attorney powers to try and make me do a budget.
    If I just say it when no one is listening maybe I can later say the exact opposite and it’d be all good- people aren’t really as smart as me any way.


  16. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 8:04 pm:

    Everyone who receives these e-mails should reply back to him politely. Thanks for the information, but I will make my decision based on facts. Flood his inbox. If he is sending these to all state employees can you imagine the number of responses if just 1/3 responded like that.


  17. - Annonin' - Tuesday, Jan 31, 17 @ 8:15 pm:

    Remember Missouri is a state with an out of control,multi year landfill fire burnings towards nuke waste….let’s hear for less regulation


  18. - Metro East Transplant - Wednesday, Feb 1, 17 @ 7:57 am:

    “The problem is how slowly Washington, D.C. moves” I would have to disagree with this statement. As of late it seems to be moving pretty quickly to me.


  19. - Vole - Wednesday, Feb 1, 17 @ 8:53 am:

    Send regulatory power back to the states where all competency and industry “experts” reside.

    Dark Money — Koch and Rauner power — brings long term pain to the commoners and the commons.


  20. - Scamp640 - Wednesday, Feb 1, 17 @ 9:31 am:

    Nothing says democracy better than sending power back to the states. “State’s rights” is such a good idea, said no civil rights advocate ever.
