Last June, State Treasurer Michael Frerichs stated: “One thing a progressive tax would do is make clear you can have graduated rates when you are taxing retirement income. And I think that’s something that’s worth discussion.”
Today Frerichs scheduled a press conference to clarify his statement on taxing retirement, but he cancelled it at the last minute to hide his true intentions from voters.

Last election cycle Speaker Madigan gave over $21 million to State Representative candidates. After the election, despite corruption and sexual harassment scandals swirling around his office, these candidates returned the favor and loyally voted Madigan in as Speaker.
Last week, Speaker Madigan was implicated in a bribery scandal with ComEd after the company admitted it provided jobs and contracts to Speaker Madigan’s allies in exchange for rate hikes and favorable regulations.
Yet, Democrat candidates refuse to return the tainted money or pledge not to take any more.
Sign here and demand local democrats return the tainted Madigan Money.

It is abundantly clear Mike Madigan cannot be trusted. Madigan’s alleged involvement in a bribery scheme involving ComEd proves he does not have Illinois families’ best interests in mind. He is out for himself, his power and his riches.
The graduated income tax initiative he pushed through the legislature would devastate families and small businesses, and give him more power to hike taxes to unaffordable levels for middle-class families.
Sign here and demand Madigan resign!
