Team Rauner sets 5-day fundraising target “to show Madigan that Illinois does not want the old way”

Thursday, Jul 27, 2017

* From a fundraising e-mail…

In case you missed it: this month, Michael Madigan forced the largest tax hike in state history on Illinois families.

FIRST: Career politicians crippled our state for decades with a culture of corruption and self-interest.

THEN: Madigan, the House and Senate rejected commonsense reforms presented by Governor Rauner.

NOW: Madigan forced a permanent 32% income tax hike on Illinois families and passed a budget that is $2 billion out of balance.

We can’t sit by and watch Illinois go back to the old way of doing things.

Illinois is already suffering and the last thing we need is higher taxes without structural reform.

We have only 5 short days until July 31st and we need to raise $10,000 by then in order to send the message that we’re not going to accept the unsustainable and dangerous habits of the past.

Will you help fight back against the 32% tax hike?

If you agree we need to see real budget reform in our state - NOT a massive 32% tax hike - please donate to our reform fund today so we can fight back.

    >>Donate $10>>
    >>Donate $25>>
    >>Donate $50>>
    >>Donate $100>>

We need to show Madigan that Illinois does not want the old way.

Team Rauner

As I’ve talked about before, small-dollar fundraising helps people feel they have “buy-in” on a campaign. The tiny amount of money is irrelevant to Rauner. But a list of committed small-dollar donors is worth its weight in gold. Rauner reported over $182K in unitemized receipts during the last quarter. Not bad for a rich guy.

* Meanwhile, in other campaign news…

Today, Illinois Painters District Councils No. 14, No. 30, and No. 58 joined together to endorse JB Pritzker for governor. As members of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, they represent 36 different craft trades collectively across Illinois. This endorsement comes as labor support for JB Pritzker continues to grow, with support from the Illinois AFL-CIO and seventeen unions across the state of Illinois, including the Associated Fire Fighters of Illinois, United Food and Commercial Workers Local 881, and the United Steelworkers Union.

    Send money to a rich dude who doesn’t need it.

    I don’t know if it shows Madigan anything, but it shows me the mental state of those contributing.

    Not it stigma-perpetuating way.

    Labor really taught Pat Quinn a lesson.

    It was 2 in 5 households voting Rauner.

    Then, just a mere weeks into the job, Bruce Rauner, in a prepared PowerPoint made the case that prevailing wage and collective bargaining needs to go.

    Property Tax freeze? It’s really about dininishing Labor, eliminating prevailing wage and collective bargaining.

    Lincolnshire? Leslie Munger’s hometown making RTW Zones their banner to carry.

    Labor. Think Quinn learned that lesson?

    People will be better off donating there money to charity or someone poor.

    ==Not it stigma-perpetuating way.==
    ?

    “We can’t sit by and watch Illinois go back to the old way of doing things.”

    Remember when things actually got done.


  6. - A guy - Thursday, Jul 27, 17 @ 10:28 am:

    I’m with Walk. Really dude?


  7. - Galena Guy - Thursday, Jul 27, 17 @ 10:29 am:

    Bruce has had plenty of time to ferret out the “corruption and self interest”.

    Can anyone say “warehouse”? (Cough, cough)


  8. - A guy - Thursday, Jul 27, 17 @ 10:29 am:

    ==Remember when things actually got done.===

    Maybe if you’ve got an AARP card.
    And it’s not new. /s

    ==we’re not going to accept the unsustainable and dangerous habits of the past.==

    Like running up 15 billion in debt and refusing to pay for services rendered? They also say “reform” four times but don’t provide specifics.


  10. - wordslinger - Thursday, Jul 27, 17 @ 10:45 am:

    Walker, “not in a stigma-perpetuating way.” Gadget problems.

    Guy, shouldn’t you be helping the governor round up all those absent legislators? Because you read somewhere that he can compel attendance.

    I’m guessing, pop-up book?


  11. - Langhorne - Thursday, Jul 27, 17 @ 10:56 am:

    10 grand, really? Really?

    $2k per day? Is that even enough to cover postage?

    I am starting to really like the new comms staff. We need their comic relief.

    Oh, got it. I am way too slow this morning.

    “If you agree we need to see real budget reform in our state - NOT a massive 32% tax hike - please donate to our reform fund today so we can fight back.”

    The budget bills have been overridden. Did Team Rauner miss that??? Please explain, in detail following Miss Rasmussen’s protocols, why you need 10K by July 31st. What “reforms” are you going to achieve. Team Rauner is coming off sounding like the early morning preachers who promise salvation for just a little “seed” money.


  14. - ShaggyDog - Thursday, Jul 27, 17 @ 11:43 am:

    Once again campaigning instead of Governing. Thanks for nothing Bruce. I will donate to the APL and save a dog instead.


  15. - Steward As Well.... - Thursday, Jul 27, 17 @ 2:05 pm:

    I’m in for a Benjamin. Oh wait?/S


  16. - Bee - Thursday, Jul 27, 17 @ 4:13 pm:

    Rauner has gone down in defeat with his agenda, but the far majority of the electorate believes that Illinois needs serious reform. Great, blame Rauner. We’re a Union State. But local business sentiment is lowwwwwwwwww.


  17. - wordslinger - Thursday, Jul 27, 17 @ 4:18 pm:

    –But local business sentiment is lowwwwwwwwww.–

    That’s dramatic.

    Does that mean if I need a plumber, there’s none to be had?

    No grocery stores or restaurants when I’m hungry?

    Business does not want to serve the large consumer market here? Or draw on the large labor force.

    What do you mean?
