Chicago GOP slams Democrat's plan to raise city taxes in pension bill
CHICAGO -- The Chicago Republican Party issued the following statement regarding the Chicago pension reform law signed by Gov. Pat Quinn today:
Once again, Democrats lead by raising taxes instead of delivering reform-based solutions. Â Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Gov. Pat Quinn and Democrat candidate for Treasurer Mike Frerichs have approved legislation that will raise property taxes and telephone taxes for every Chicago resident.
Now more than ever, we need a new direction the delivers solutions instead of taking more money from over-burdened taxpayers.
