That’s what Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mark Brown reported yesterday.
How does Brown feel?
Here’s the end of his column:
“…I support his overall goal. If we’re going to raise the income tax, this is the time to deal with education funding, too.
“There are more legislators than you might expect who are willing to raise taxes, even in this economy, but if they’re going to take the political hit, they’re only going to do it once, and they’re going to want to have something more to show for it than getting the state’s bills paid more quickly.”
