“The only way to grow our Illinois economy and lower our unemployment rate is to cut taxes and reduce spending. More money will then stay in the hands of individuals and businesses and the result will be a better economic climate.”
Repeal of the 67% Tax Increase on Individuals and Businesses in Illinois
Businesses and people are leaving Illinois because of higher taxes. In fact, since the tax increase, unemployment in Illinois has gone up.

The result: budget deficits, pension liabilities, and an unfriendly economic and business environment.1
Reduce legislators’ pay, eliminate legislators’ pensions, and stope the use of taxpayer dollars for their campaigns.
