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.

    would be OK with paying 5% if I saw some action in state’s part on decreasing budget and on pension control

    Those members of our legislature that continue to push for spending above our budget limits are out of line. I am sick of this stupidity. I am watching voting records, and you can be assured that I will be voting against those who continue to bankrupt this state. May God intervene on behalf of those with common sense and enable us to get elected officials that are responsible.

    We have been lied to, stolen from, and violated by the very people we elected and trusted to protect and uphold our constitutional values. Enough is enough! The destruction of this state and this country is imminent under such a sorry excuse for leadership.

    I vote.

    Very sincerely,

    Cassie Eigenmann
