McConchie only “disappointed” in Rauner’s decision to sign bill for taxpayer-funded abortions



QeE55OvTSPRINGFIELD, IL - State Senator Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods) issues the following statement regarding the signing of House Bill 40:

“Words cannot express my profound disappointment of the Governor’s decision to sign House Bill 40, which dramatically expands taxpayer funded abortions across the state.

“Taxpayers should not be forced to fund something as controversial and culturally divisive as abortions. Likewise, there is no good reason for taxpayers to be on the hook for someone else’s personal decision.

“There was a public commitment made by the Governor to veto this bill. His flip-flopping on this issue raises serious questions on whether the Governor’s word can be trusted on other matters.”

  1. You better be a lot more than “disappointed.” Any Republican who takes Rauner’s money or continues to back Rauner is as GUILTY as he is. And they will NOT get my vote or support, same as their precious Pro-Sanctuary State Pro-Abortion RINO Billionaire Bruce Rauner will NOT get my vote or support…

  2. Profound disappointment and doubting Rauner’s word from now on is fairly strong. I don’t see this as weak, just not as strong as some others. Rauner is telling us he isn’t running. It’s too bad because he is in a wheel chair and it would be too much of a strain that McConchie can’t run for Governor. He has the smarts to do it.

  3. I don’t know if I know anyone who is more pro-life than Dan. I certainly hope your headline isn’t questioning his commitment to the pro-life cause. If it is, then maybe you do need to shut the site down as you’ve alluded to being tempted to do on Facebook.
    You can be upset with someone and still be diplomatic about it.
