Statement from Rep. Durkin on State of the State

Posted on February 02, 2012 9:29 AM

“Last year the governor signed into law a democrat tax increase that was the largest Illinois Families have ever seen and claimed it would fix the state’s budget problem. A year later the state is no better off than we were, not a penny of it went to pay off our debt. Illinois Democrats created a job crushing corporate income tax increase and today goes on about wanting to create jobs. They caused the companies to run across the borders to other states. We are past the point of time for committees and task forces. We need to act upon pension reform and enact Medicaid reforms.”
