For Goodness Sake, What is Quinn’s Problem? He Doesn’t Want to Raise Taxes Enough
From the Rich Whitney digest, The Beachwood Reporter
In this race, I am the only candidate standing up for tax and budget reforms aimed at restoring health to the public sector, especially education.
I am the only candidate who stands with the Responsible Budget Coalition and its campaign to fix our broken tax system and raise more revenue by making it more progressive, the campaign supported by your union.
I was the only candidate who stood with you and your brothers and sisters in the IFT on April 21st when we protested for a responsible budget in Springfield.
And I am the only candidate who brings to the table new and innovative ideas for raising more revenue, such as a tax on speculative trading in Illinois, which could readily raise billions of dollars to restore health to the public sector, and a state bank, which will enable our government to raise additional revenues without raising taxes more than necessary.
