Gary Rabine [CEO, Rabine Group]: Gov. Pritzker said to me, "Gary, you built all your businesses here, your family is all here, you're never gonna go anywhere, I mean, that's exactly how he said it... and God Bless him, if he really believes that that's the case, but that can't be the case, I can't risk the lives & jobs we are talking about, I can't risk all these jobs just because I want to be here- right?

Berkowitz: If you could persuade [those in control of] the IL State Government to change and start going in the other direction: [LEGISLATE] lower property taxes, lower income taxes, [Don't support] a progressive income tax, [ADOPT THE NEEDED REFORMS TO] lower workers compensation rates, would that be Nirvana for you?

Rabine discusses with Public Affairs show host Jeff Berkowitz how he began, after graduating from high school, a driveway paving business that was transformed, eventually, into a group of major companies that have been a source of quality jobs, growth, opportunity, hope and wealth for his employees and himself, and improved choices for his customers, both in and out of Illinois.

Rabine and Berkowitz discuss and debate the pluses and minuses of  Governors Rauner & Pritzker, IL pension reform-- amending the IL Constitution to allow reduction of government pension benefits and giving IL cities and villages the power to file for bankruptcy, Gov. Pritzker's proposed IL progressive income tax (on the Nov. 2020 ballot)  and Democratic Party Presidential Primary candidates and President Trump. 

Rabine also discusses what is necessary for IL to become more competitive in business and a more people friendly environment for its residents to work, grow and enjoy their lives and families.
