Pat Quinn's "temporary" income tax hike expires in 337 days

Yesterday Illinois' hapless governor, Chicago Democrat Pat Quinn, gave his State of the State address. "Illinois is making a comeback," he boasted.

Quinn has been governor for five years. Thanks for getting around to that task.

Three years ago Quinn and his fellow Democrats passed a "temporary" 67 percent personal income tax hike. There was no mention of that tax increase, the funds from it were supposed to pay off old bills but most of it went to public worker pensions, nor of its expiration on January 1, 2015. That's because the Dems are plotting to replace it with a progressive income tax, in other words, another tax hike.

Quinn lied.

There is an election in November
