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 am completely out of patience with the broken promises of the Democrats in Springfield. In the not too distant future my wife and I may be reading about this governmental meltdown from another state.

    You can always count on the Democrat Party to violate their pledges to deliver a balanced budget. As usual, Illinois remains the central capitol of political corruption!

    I supported the “temporary hike” to allow time to bring down spending in an organized way and keep people employed. That problem could have and…. should have been solved by now. Its obvious there was no intent to solve it.

    Last week, Democrats were passing spending bills without a sure revenue stream – including a raise for themselves! $2.48 BILLION MORE than original budget. WE ARE BROKE! STOP SPENDING! Follow the LAW – and the Illinois Constitution someday!

    It’s imperative that we fire or vote out every corrupt politician in Illinois and Chicago.
