GOP Gubernatorial Hopeful Rauner Goes On Attack Against Public Sector Unions


A Republican businessman who is considering a run for governor is taking direct aim at public sector unions. 

 

In an interview for 970 WMAY’s Michael Koolidge Show, Bruce Rauner said that groups like AFSCME and the major teachers unions in Illinois are running Springfield… using their leverage to get taxpayer-funded raises and benefits.  And Rauner says those groups then use that money to support friendly politicians, a practice he equates with bribery. 

 

Rauner is vowing to shrink union influence in the state’s politics and to reduce the tax burden for Illinois residents and businesses.
