The Legislature Gets Something Right
Hell has not frozen over. The Cubs have not won the World Series. But the Illinois Legislature dealt a significant blow to Gov. Rod's Gross Receipts Tax today.
It's the right idea (health care access for all) funded the wrong way (tax on gross receipts).
I'd say 107-0 is a pretty clear message, right Mr. Gov?
When are we going to wake up and realize that we are no longer living in a manufacturing economy, but still have a manufacturing tax base?
Can anyone else say Tax on Services? No, I don't like any new tax. But a tax on services coupled with tax relief for manufacturing seems to be a good start.
