|Give me your money|
This will cost me a lot of money--that cash is headed for the sinkhole known as Illinois state government. The state has a spending problem, not a revenue problem.
Last year a Quinn aide suggested a 2 percent increase in the personal state income tax, which the governor disavowed--he said he would veto a hike that big. But it appears that was Quinn's plan all along. He's a liar.
The 47 percent of Illinois voters--enough for Quinn to win a full-term after his former running mate, Rod Blagojevich, was booted out of office--should apologize to the rest of the state. They can start with me: john "dot" ruberry "at" sbcglobal.net.
It's not a done deal, but taxpayers have a reason to be depressed.
