Madigan's New Solution

  • Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan declared Wednesday that the state income tax rate should be raised back to at least 5 percent to help balance the state's out-of-whack finances.

    In doing so, Madigan potentially gave new life to Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner's argument that Democrats are to blame for the stalemate in Springfield because they're intent on only raising taxes to dig out of the state budget deficit. That's likely to be a GOP attack point in next year's House and Senate campaigns as Republicans try to cut into significant Democratic majorities.
It's a "one solution fits all!" typical of democrats nationwide. First claim you can't tax your way to prosperity, then proceed to raise taxes on everyone, hopefully to make your family/business connections prosper.

That is the solution. 20% out of every agency and department.

If the department head can't do it - cut them. If they can't find 20% in their bloated budgets, might as well cut them out of their bloated salaries because they have demonstrated they don't have the skill sets to be paid what they are getting paid.

Too draconian? Not for Illinois, the land of bloated government and patronage jobs.

What happened to all the money they got from doubling the fees on all the Tollways?

This POS, along with "Dirty Little Richie", form the most compelling local reason for TERM LIMITS. Not to mention that his adopted daughter is the Illinois Attorney General.

At a government level, it is far easier to raise taxes than it is to cut spending. It is easier to spread the money around to favored groups and buy more votes and political power that way. It's the democrat way.

Five % Rauner was making more than double that in fees with the CPS teacher pension fund Rahm gave him prior to his gubernatorial run. How the phuck we got stuck with these bookend ass clowns?

Why is there never talk of limits or cuts on Welfare? Years ago you had to hope that the church or some soup kitchen would feed you. Hope many public aid homes today have you seen where they're all living quite well? A time limit of 5 years and your done getting aid would help save a lot of $$

Madigan and Cullerton wanted to add 4 billion dollars in additional deficits to the state's budget this year. Instead of trimming costs they want to raise taxes. Rainer told them no more budget deficits.

Where does this douchenozzle think we're going to get this extra money to pay for his tax increase? Our wages sure as hell aren't going up. It's time for term limits.

Slavery means to force someone to work without compensation, except as the punishment for a crime. These raised taxes are for expenses occurred by others is slavery, pure and simple.
