Recently, Gov. Pat Quinn signed the pension reform law estimated to save taxpayers $160 billion and claimed a victory for the people. After his re-election several years ago, Gov. Quinn immediately signed into law a 67 percent increase in the Illinois income tax rate. His election was a mandate by the people to raise income taxes, according to Quinn.
In anticipation of victory in the 2014 election, Gov. Quinn is already committed to raising taxes. A vote for Quinn in 2014 is a mandate to raise taxes in January 2015.
