Hey Illinois, Want Your Government to Shut Down? Vote Republican! Vote for Bruce Rauner!
It’s amazing to see a candidate for governor, in this case Illinois, talking about firing people en masse and shutting down the government instead of talking about working to take care for its citizens and making life better for them.
Republicans are “out” about this now. No qualms. If voters elect them, don’t be shocked when they make it so government doesn’t work. That’s their goal. They want to turn everything over to the corporatocracy. And guess who’ll suffer. We the People.
In a newly surfaced video, Illinois’ Republican gubernatorial nominee Bruce Rauner suggested if elected governor, he will fire public employees and potentially shut down the government to address his state’s fiscal challenges.
The video, circulated today by the Illinois Federation of Teachers, shows Rauner addressing the Tazewell County Republican dinner in March. In remarks to that group, Rauner said: “We may have to go through rough times. We may have to do what Ronald Reagan did with the air traffic controllers. Sort of have to do a do-over and shut things down for a little while. That’s what we’re gonna do.”
