Stand with Rauner

House Speaker Mike Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton passed a partisan budget with a $4 billion hole in it. They are now demanding a massive tax increase to pay for their spending. Gov. Bruce Rauner, along with the unanimous support of the Senate and House Republicans, refused to go along with the phony budget and have demanded structural reforms to business-as-usual in Springfield.

Rauner’s turnaround agenda includes five structural changes that must be made to save the state. The changes include term limits, redistricting reform, property tax reform, tort reform and worker’s comp reform. These reforms will bring jobs to our state and stop the political class from ruling our state with an iron fist.

Rauner needs our support for his agenda to save our state. People may go to the St. Clair County Republican Party website and Facebook page to find out what they can do to help Rauner save Illinois.
