Illinois Needs a New Direction, No More Broken Promises

Republican candidate for Illinois State Treasurer Tom Cross released a statement yesterday in response to Governor Quinn's budget address where he announced that along with Speaker Mike Madigan and State Senator Mike Frerichs, they would push to make the income tax from 2011 permanent.

From the Tom Cross site:
“The simple fact is under Governor Pat Quinn and Senator Mike Frerichs, Illinois is going from bad to worse. Three years after the 67 percent income tax increase supported by Quinn/Frerichs, there is less funding for education, less funding for critical safety-net programs, over $7 billion in unpaid bills and fewer jobs. Despite the tax increase being a complete failure, the Quinn/Frerichs team has doubled down and is seeking to make it permanent. In the process, they have broken their word to Illinois taxpayers as they previously pledged the tax increase would be temporary."
