Governor Bruce Rauner is clarifying his position on the Republican tax reform plan on Capitol Hill. Earlier this week, Rauner said he was “applauding” Congress for its work on the issue… leading to a backlash from Democratic opponents who say the GOP plan will hurt middle-class Illinoisans.
Rauner now says he wasn’t commenting on the specific legislation, just on the overall idea of lowering the tax burden.
He says he is consulting with Republicans in D.C…. and says their tax reform effort is, quote, “a long way from done.”
