The one thing you won’t hear Illinois Democrats proposing is deep cuts in spending, but what else can we expect from people who are so deep in denial?
In Illinois, we don’t have a revenue problem, we have an 8 year long Democrat spending problem.
Quinn may feel good about taxing those big, bad energy corporations, but we all know any tax increase will be passed on to consumers and businesses—a sure way encourage job creation!
Cullerton’s cigarette tax isn’t needed according to the GOP—this is just another Democrat grab for our wallets.
There is absolutely no way the Democrats can tax their way out of the $80 billion in looted pension funds and the multiple billions owed on bills. I’m sure Democrats know this, but they also know more $$$$ in the general fund will be more $$$$ for wealth redistribution to family, friends, cronies and special interests.
The good news is we’ll be able to see what kind of Democrats Verschoore and Jacobs are: tax and spend liberals in the pocket of special interests or champions of the downtrodden taxpayers.
Both of these men lost their virginity when they voted for the massive tax increase in January and I suspect now they won’t be able to get enough of TAX! TAX! TAX! SPEND! SPEND! SPEND!
