State Rep. David McSweeney is playing the role of Paul Revere.
But, it’s not the British that’s coming; it’s the tax eaters.
In an interview, McSweeney said,
“The Senate’s ‘Grand Bargain’ is not dead.”‘Grand Bargain’ is a code phrase for the largest tax increase in the State of Illinois.
“Taxes would be raised even higher than Patrick Quinn supported.
“It includes an income tax that will hurt families and kill small business and jobs.
“It includes a service tax expansion that will drive even more people out of the State of Illinois.
“Any Republican who supports this massive tax increase is a tax collector for the Chicago Democratic Machine.”
The most recent version of John Cullerton’s tax increase plan can be found in Amendment 3 of Senate Bill 9. Its content has not yet been posted, but, when it is, it will appear on the web page in the previous sentence.
