At Friday’s [Kemp Forum], Rauner discussed his belief in attempting to create a movement for economic opportunity that mirrored his statements about mobilizing his re-election effort.
“The system of government, the system of politics in Illinois is broken. We need a movement to take it on, and it’s not Democrat or Republican, it’s not liberal or conservative, it’s not name-calling or labeling or categorizing people,” he said.
The governor then decried Illinois’ workers’ compensation program as filled with a “corrupt group of trial lawyers and judges and arbitrators along with unethical individuals” who work to game the system.
In other states, “it’s not full of the fraud and the abuse and the illegal behavior, I should say unethical behavior, that we have in Illinois,” he said.
