“A graduated income tax will make it easier to raise taxes and even easier to play games with our state’s Tax Code. I believe the crafters of our current Constitution, which included a flat tax and was embraced by the people of Illinois, designed it specifically to protect middle-income families from politicians,” said Brady (R-Bloomington). “We have proven over the past few years how easy it’s been to raise taxes in Illinois. A graduated income tax will make it even easier and, in fact, open the door for future tax increases. Today, I chose to stand with the middle-income families of Illinois and against this $3.4 billion tax increase.”
As Senate Republicans, our goal is to encourage job growth by
developing an efficient, transparent, ethical state government
with less regulation and lower taxes. We must leave a legacy of
responsible government that will last for generations.
