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 would not be against the taxes if they were properly used, instead, the taxes seam to be used to increase spending. The state employees deserve their pensions, and instead of paying the piper as due, they want to cut the pensions, raise taxes and spend on new projects. Cut the spend, keep the pensions, and make it work!

    If this spending behavior does not stop now, then under what circumstances will it end ? Democrats are converting individual responsibility into public obligation, and using debt as the currency to get themselves re-elected. It is tyranny by the minority and it must end.

    We don’t want the state to give money to the Obama library. The schools need to be paid—having to drop programs.

    The spending should be cut just like our individual budgets at home. If we don’t have the income, we certainly can’t spend it. Increasing the debt for our children is not only wrong, it just says we don’t care about anything except the here and now. Each budgeted line item shoulde be looked as we do at home – IS IT A WANT OR A NEED? If it is a need then by all means we need to fund for it but if it is a want, we need to decide how important that want is before we just keep increasing taxes tocover it!

    Jil tells us tax revenue this year will be $1.25 Billion more than budgeted. Lets see if the Dems pay down old bills with this $ or will they find new projects to spend it on?? (Obama library……)
