The Revolution promised by Rauner in 2014 failed in 2017 due to a "Sell out" by many Republican "Benedict Arnolds," like Rep. David Harris (R-Arlington Heights) in early July, 2017
After the fiasco with John Tillman's Illinois Policy Institute in July, Rauner seems to have given up on a second stab at Revolution- and lately the Governor is tacking left...

During the show, host Jeff Berkowitz debates and discusses with Caprio a bit of Illinois political history, including what Caprio views as the broken promises and lack of accountability by Republican Governors such as Edgar and Ryan and many current Republican legislators who promised low spending, low taxes but voted for a $5 billion income tax increase.
So, in Caprio's and many Republicans' views the Revolution promised by Rauner and Republican legislatoris in 2014 failed in 2017 due to a "Sell out" by many Republican legislator traitors or "Benedict Arnolds," like Rep. David Harris (R-Arlington Heights) in early July, 2017.
Then, Gov. Rauner brought into his administration major players from the Illinois Policy Institute in July, 2017 after the sell out, including Diana Rickert to head up the Communication Team; Kristina Rasmussen, as Rauner's COS and Mike Lucci, to head up his Policy team.
As of the time of the taping of the above referenced show with Caprio, July 13, it looked like Gov. Rauner was ready to run for re-election, based on a second stab at Revolution, with the former Policy Institute employees infusing new intellectual Blood, Sweat & Tears into a new Team Rauner.
But, Rauner now seems to have given up on that effort for a second stab at Revolution, and lately the Governor appears to be tacking left, or whichever way the wind will take or tack him.
We will pick up on that discussion in future blog posts and future shows.
