Tami and David

Staunton, IL

Tami has received that training, and she’s provided me essential care for 27 years, but Rauner’s new overtime home care rules are severely limiting the amount of time she can spend working.

Peoria, IL

Under Bruce Rauner, people I know and work with every day have struggled to find the care they need. For Veterans like me, routine medical services are often inadequate and few and far between.

Mike M.

Milan, IL

I saw the consequences first hand as the people I help and care for daily were failed by this reckless governor. Rauner’s inability to take charge and stand up for those who served our country is a shame.

Miller

Chicago, IL

During the budget crisis, funding for critical services that help seniors like me pay our bills was cut off. I couldn’t afford most of my payments. There’s a lot of seniors on my program that suffered at the hands of Bruce Rauner.

Olympia Fields, IL

When it comes to women’s healthcare, Rauner has threatened our basic right to even access critical procedures. He crowned himself the “strongest supporter” of anti-choice candidates, and only signed HB40 after intense pressure from myself and other brave advocates.

Janet

Fairbury, IL

He’s jeopardized healthcare for so many, especially downstate. Bruce Rauner likes to talk a big game about downstate, but it’s clear he’s out of touch with what we really need.

Patrick

Bloomington, IL

Bruce Rauner’s failures as governor leave me worried for the future. I’m worried that if Rauner gets re-elected, I won’t have a union to protect me in the workplace.

Dana

Orland Park, IL

The people I work with are in communities that have been forgotten and left behind for decades— but they’ve been hardest hit by Bruce Rauner.

Yolanda

Chicago, IL

For three years, my pay raises have been stuck in limbo because of Bruce Rauner’s Department of Labor— and I’ve even missed out on paychecks due to his budget crisis.

Mike

Williamsville, IL

Bruce Rauner doesn’t respect teachers, or public education. He thinks his own agenda is more of a priority than the state’s responsibility to fund public education.

Paul

Naperville, IL

Bruce Rauner’s failed policies have had a great deal of impact on my district. Other districts in the area take in almost 2.5 times more than we do, and we’ve had to really cut down on our already tight budget.

Jill

Wood River, IL

When MAP grants weren’t being funded during Rauner’s budget crisis, I had students come tell me they weren’t sure if they were going to be able to come back to school. That uncertainty means they’re less likely to get their degree.

Gina

Oak Park, IL

The past few years under Bruce Rauner have been really scary for us. The conversation we’ve been forced to have nonstop is whether or not our schools can survive and thrive.

Chris

East Chatham, Chicago

Bruce Rauner wouldn’t approve a budget for almost three years and as a result, there were lay-offs at CSU. I was one of the first of the 300 people who got let go.

Katrina

Midlothian, IL

Before Bruce Rauner became governor, we had a large amount of substitute teachers and paraprofessionals. Now, if I’m sick, I have to think about how that is going to affect my students.
