Tax Hike Not Fair; Also Wrong

Hats off to Illinois minority leader Senator Christine Radogno, who I heard speaking on the radio last night. She was pointing out that while Gov. Quinn's take hike plan may lower taxes on some four person families, it will be a tax hike on single moms. That violates Gov. Quinn's own professed desire for "fairness" completely, and exposes the proposed Illinois Income Tax increase for what it is: a 50% tax hike with deductions increased in a clever enough manner to hush up the majority of opponents.

Even Illinois Democrat leaders understand that Taxpayers want budget cuts and reform, not tax increases.

Illinois government must be cut down to size. That is the only way to do right by the people.

And guess who has a tax increase coming up in the April election? That would be Avoca school! Well, at least they are putting the question to the taxpayers.

Thanks for dropping by the old neighborhood!
