In the late hours of January 11, 2011 many of us taxpayers were at home asleep, leaving us unaware that when we woke up - Governor Quinn’s historic income tax increase had been approved by the Democrats in the Illinois House. The Quinn legislation increased our income tax by 67 percent. The result - a $7 billion tax increase on Illinois families and employers.
Susan Sweeney - Candidate for Illinois State Representative in the 55th District - has pledged to vote to repeal the Quinn tax increase. Her opponent, Marty Moylan has not.
