Why run down millionaires?

To the Editor:

What is wrong with running down millionaires?

Without them this country would be in bad shape. They give to schools and charities, and all the politicians want to run them down when someone such as Bruce Rauner wants to help this state out of debt.

I wish I was a millionaire so I could hand out $100 bills to poor people. Let’s turn this state around and vote in November for Rauner and give him a chance. Everybody wants to be a millionaire, so why run them down?
