The only way to fix Illinois’ failing economy is to continue doing exactly what we’ve been doing for the last 45 years.

That’s essentially what Illinois House of Representatives Speaker Mike Madigan and Illinois Senate President John Cullerton have been saying when faced with opportunities for real economic reform.
But if raising taxes on Illinois’ middle class and kicking the financial can down the road haven’t worked yet, why would they work now?
You and I know the Springfield status quo isn’t working.
Illinois needs responsible spending and long-term reforms.
We’re ready for an economic climate that welcomes businesses and jobs, instead of driving them to surrounding states.
