Putting Our Fiscal House in Order
Aren’t you tired of hearing about Illinois’ horrible fiscal situation? Are you tired of hearing about billions of dollars in unpaid bills? Me too. It’s time for a real change.
As your Representative in Springfield, I won’t sit quietly by while we pass unbalanced budgets that keep kicking the can down the road and sending our credit rating further and further into the basement.
I’ll ask hard questions about tax fairness, bonds and borrowing, and pension funding. I’ll work hard to develop new, collaborative solutions that won’t pile unfair burdens on the backs of working families. I will champion efforts to eliminate Illinois’ constitutional amendment which mandates a flat tax for all Illinoisans and places a greater burden on low-income and middle-class families than the millionaires and billionaires who aren’t paying their fair share.
It’s not impossible to pass a state budget that funds our priorities while keeping taxes fair and reasonable. Other states have done it. We can, too.
