Vote to challenge status quo in Illinois Senate
Sep 27, 2016 1:00 AM - Back in 2012 when I was running for the Illinois state Senate, going door-to-door, I heard the following. "As soon as my kids are out of school, I will leave Illinois. I can't afford to pay the ever-increasing taxes." Since then, conditions have gotten worse. People continue to leave and take their taxable income with them. The stack of unpaid bills is larger. Unfunded pension debt is more. Credit ratings are lower. And yet, the Democrats are intent on maintaining the status quo.
