Let Income Tax Increase Expire - Illinois House Republican Leader Jim Durkin

Let Income Tax Increase Expire

In a lame duck session in 2011, the Democrat-controlled legislature imposed a 67% income tax increase on every working person in the state of Illinois. They promised it was temporary and set it to rollback on January 1, 2015. Now they want to make that tax increase permanent.

We don't think it's right. If you agree, please add your name to the petition below and take the added step of sharing it with your friends.

Let's make them keep their promise.

    We do not need to send more money to the state. They need to manage the revenue they have. Currently, our state is in worse shape now than it was before the tax. As a businessman, I do not understand how this could be possible.

    I would vote to extend the tax only if they could show me that every penny went to pay down debt. I only want to pay extra tax if it is positively going to pay off debt, which includes the pension crises. Republicans and Democrats are both to blame for this mess which has taken years to create!

    When it comes to government and taxes, ‘temporary’ is never temporary!!

    We need to stop driving businesses and residents out of this state. We need to create a business climate that creates jobs. Poor management decisions, corruption, cronyism and catering to public service unions are all killing this once great state. Raising taxes to compensate for all of the above is not the answer. If unions and patronage workers fund elections and then expect to be taken care of, the average citizen doesn’t get anything from elected officials except the bill. The only choice you leave people is to vote with their feet. DROP THIS TEMPORARY TAX AS PROMISED!

    The insanity of the taxing philosophy of the Democrooks must stop!! They have had control far to long. They have us falling off the cliff. Same old scare tactics, we will suffer greatly without the tax increase. They have written checks to the Unions pensions to buy their votes. Problem is, the checks aren’t worth the paper they were written on. Now they want the taxpaying citizens of this state to bail them out. Enough is enough, vote these criminals out of office!!!
