Repeal The Tax Hike

Repeal Pledge

On January 12, 2011, at 1:30AM Illinois’s 96th General Assembly passed the largest tax hike in state history, raising the individual income tax rate by 67 percent and the corporate tax rate by 46 percent.  Illinois is already losing jobs at an alarming rate and these tax hikes will only make things worse.  We have asked every member of the General Assembly to sign the Repeal Pledge and commit to honest, sustainable, and accountable government.

  5. Let’s repeal this job killing measure. – Jonathan Wallace, IL House Candidate District 72

  6. Happy to do so…especially given that I am a co-sponsor on the bill to repeal that awful tax increase.

  7. Carol Bleisch via Facebook says:

    Thank you Rep. Rich Morthland – I choose less life insurance this year so I would have more money in my pocket to make ends meet – but this tax took that away. So not much life insurance and IL is not balancing their budget and using its citizens to float the excess. REPEAL THIS TAX!!!

  8. Brian Costin via Facebook says:

    Thank you to Rep. Rich Morthland for signing the pledge to repeal the Income Tax Increases!

  9. Brian Costin via Facebook says:

    Thank you to State Representative Pam Roth for signing this pledge to protect the taxpayers of Illinois.
