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.

    I also agree with you that we the taxpayers should NOT be paying for Obama’s library, no matter where it is built. Why don’t the citizens of his birthplace Kenya build the Obama in Kenya?

    We absolutely need to get rid of the temporary tax increase and STOP SPENDING!!!!!!!!!. I cannot believe that any legislator in his right mind would run his household like some of them want to run our government. They need to work with businesses to create jobs and make Illinois a great place to do business. WAKE UP.
