Pat Quinn is demanding his income tax increase and he wants it now. He still thinks his one half of one percent win is a mandate to raise our taxes. Quinn has been hammering and yammering for an income tax increase for five years.
He claims it will go for education and debt reduction. Just like the lottery and casinos were supposed to. We saw how that turned out. Quinn is saying nothing about reducing spending, especially the waste, fraud, mismanagement, and corruption; costing us about one billion dollars a year.
Quinn wants his tax increase to supersede everything else. It is too important to him- and the special interests who got him elected. It is the single most important thing he will do- it is the only thing he will do.
Truth? The truth is the governor, his party, the legislature, and his predecessor, put us in this mess. They borrowed and spent like crack addicts. Now, they expect us to pay for it. The hard reality, the truth, is this- Pat Quinn is lying. To the people of Illinois.
