McConchie: Governor’s massive tax increase not the solution to a balanced budget

State Senator Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods) expressed his concerns following the Governor’s Budget Address and said another income tax increase should not be the solution:

“Despite a roaring economy and the largest tax increase in Illinois history, the Governor is proposing a budget designed to do one thing:  necessitate his massive tax increase. There’s a better way. Let’s live within our means and govern responsibly without once again reaching into taxpayer pockets. It’s not that hard.”

In regard to how the budget will work if the Governor’s tax increase does not pass, Sen. McConchie said:

“The Governor is doing exactly what he criticized his predecessor for—holding hostage schools, infrastructure, and other things like small business owners’ tax refunds if voters don’t bend to his will.”
