“Bruce is happy to pay more to support education – in fact he’s been doing that personally for decades, but he doesn’t support what looks like a first step towards empowering Mike Madigan and Pat Quinn to raise taxes on the middle class, small businesses and family farms.

“The last time they raised taxes, they hit every Illinoisan with a 67% increase, and they still turned around and cut funding for education.

“We need to grow our economy and create jobs, so we can fund education at levels far above what we’ve seen under Pat Quinn.

“We need to take a look at our entire tax system to make Illinois more competitive and lower the tax burden on the people of Illinois.”
