The counter effort to this is pretty easy. JB Pritzker funds a robo-call that says “Bruce Rauner has appropriated no money for your school to open this fall, and now he wants to veto more funding for schools”. “Tell your state rep to stand up for kids, not Rauner.” Click.
So, it’s a $500 million bailout now?
After extensive polling, $500 million beat out $200 and $300 by a country mile. So we refigured the numbers. I can’t tell you who, but trust me they are Super Stars. I know they are Super Stars because they are horribly overpaid, so they must be. Try to keep up. We are committed to using the lie which polls the best. We are Super Star World Class. Either that or it was just an honest typo in the copy?/s
If Madigan dies or has a serious medical issue that keeps him from being Speaker, the entire Illinois Rep Party campaign platform would collapse. What snappy lines do they have that are not Madigan focused? Did they just give up?
Bruce Rauner is not ignorant to how our school system is funded, be it downstate or CPS. At best he is trying to misinform the electorate, but most likely this is just an out and out lie. No, Bruce Rauner knows exactly what he’s doing, he’s banking on the ignorance of our uninformed electorate as well as the need for his base to believe anything and everything, “Because Madigan”.
I’m with Edgar and GHR and those who understand that Rauner’s own actions aren’t those of a governor, or based on GOP principles.
Use the google. Get back to me
Are you now going to say Edgar isn’t a Republican too?

That’s right, we’ve had this discussion. Your favorite Republican is the one you blame for the pension crisis. I was curious about your personal values and beliefs that cause you to identify as R. None of my business if you don’t want to share.

If this is wag shaking and brining back was suppose to be, “all things considered, I’d rather be in Philadelphia…”

To me, OW has been a consistent voice of reason and insight. It’s odd that whenever somebody disagrees with a point that he makes, they go after him personally. Often, they call him a Madigan acolyte or sycophant. There are a lot of people in this state that do not support Madigan that are disappointed by Rauner’s failures. Rauner refuses to answer questions. He has NEVER proposed a balanced budget nor has he advanced any solutions to any of our problems. Lately, he has begun to relate conversations that didn’t occur and spread blatantly untrue statements. Now, he’s embraced a far right ideology which shows either a change in his personal beliefs or that he lied to everybody when he first ran. His “democrat” wife promised us that he had no social agenda. Oops, maybe they should have a conversation because it sure looks like they’re trying to say different things to different people. It’s easy to say that we need to solve the pension problem but he hasn’t offered any suggestions to do so. Let’s accept the premise that Madigan is to blame for a lot. Accepting that, what has Rauner done to improve things in Illinois-NOTHING. His failed plan to get the majority party to cave in, capitulate and surrender has made things worse with no benefit to the people of this state. We have real problems and Rauner has proven that he’s not up to the job. What’s worse is that he’s going to lose to somebody truly unimpressive.
