The lllinois chapter of Americans for Prosperity (AFP-IL) is taking aim at 16 state legislators who voted to override Gov. Bruce Rauner’s veto and pass a budget that carries the largest permanent tax hike in state history.
The state budget passage pulled the mask off the Democratic Party to reveal the ugly truth: It is all about raising taxes without any pretense of reform, U.S. Peter Roskam (R-IL) said on a recent radio program.
Gov. Bruce Rauner added several key communication personnel to his team on Monday, further shaking up his staff following a major political defeat when the Illinois General Assembly overrode his vetoes on a budget and spending plan.
Gov. Bruce Rauner’s office has lost or terminated 21 staffers in the wake of the passage of a contentious budget plan and an unpopular tax hike on July 6, which many saw as a major political defeat for Rauner and many GOP lawmakers.
