CHICAGO – Activists and organizations are calling on taxpayers to contact the 15 Republican state representatives (photos above) who voted with Democrat IL House Speaker Mike Madigan to increase the personal income tax from 3.75% to 4.9%, and the corporate tax from 5.25% to 7%.
Madigan intends to call a vote tomorrow at 1:20pm to over-ride Gov. Rauner's veto of this tax increase.
Thank you. I called each one to support the tax increase. Illinois must pay its bills, which were 4.4 billion when Governor Ruiner took office and are over 15 billion now. I have this conservative notion that you pay your bills.
