War against women and the poor?
Ask these women and their families who rely on their incomes.
Ask how much suffering this would cause.
Ask why billionaire Gov. Bruce Rauner, who donated $9 million of his own money to himself in October alone for his own election campaign, now proposes cuts of $9 million from breast cancer screening for poor women.
He has hundreds of millions of dollars of state money to shovel to his billionaire buddies and corporate campaign contributors as “tax incentives” and “job creator” awards.
Rauner is spending lavishly to redecorate the gubernatorial mansion to bring it up to the standards of his seven, eight, or nine personal mansions.
He wants to cut teachers and teacher pensions, the vast majority of whom are women.
He wants “right to work” areas declared in the poorest areas of Illinois.
Rauner is barely in office, and he is already out of control.
Isn’t it about time for a recall?
End this savagery.
