The Northwest Herald agrees with State Representative David McSweeney (R-Barrington) and spoke out against a progressive income tax. More people need to join McSweeney and not only write the Herald, but also contact other local state representatives and let them know that they too should make their feelings known with the general public.
We need to let our elected officials know that not only should they support this risky scheme, but they should also take action and lead from the front. Wouldn’t it be refreshing to have all of the McHenry County state reps hold a joint presser and just lay into this progressive propaganda? Let them all stand before the microphone and assail this flawed ideology.
We have a lot of problems in Illinois and almost all of them can be cured with a healthy dose of fiscal responsibility. We simply cannot hope someone else fixes the problem – its all about action…
…so take some. Pick up the phone and call your local state rep office and let em know. Call your state senators too.
This progressive tax is a bad, bad, bad idea.
