In this clip, Illinois gubernatorial hopeful Bruce Rauner proposes that Illinois fire public employees apparently without cause because he felt “things” need to be “shut down for a while” to fix government.
“I apologize. We may have to go through rough times. We may have to do what Ronald Reagan did with the air traffic controllers. Sort of have to do a do-over and shut things down for a little while. That’s what we’re gonna do.”
