Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force counters Governor Rauner’s Facebook live

Submitted on Mon, 12/12/2016 - 11:24


Governor Rauner held a breast cancer awareness “Facebook live” event on Wednesday, even though $22 million in funding has been cut and thousands of women have lost access to life-saving early detection and treatment because the Governor has held the budget hostage to his demands that the General Assembly pass his Turnaround Agenda. RBC member Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Taskforce replied with it's own, hard-hitting Facebook live response to Rauner immediately after his broadcast.
