    more from IL this time


    The Illinois Policy Institute presents COMPASS Online


    Institute CEO John Tillman spoke at yesterday’s Chicago Tax Day Tea Party, calling on thousands of attendees to make their voices heard about Governor Quinn’s proposed income tax hike. You can watch his full speech here.

    Thousands Rally at Illinois Tax Day
    Tea Parties
    Did you make it to a Tea Party yesterday? Thousands across the state showed up to voice their concern about out-of-control spending and tax hikes. The Chicago rally featured the Institute’s John Tillman and Kristina Rasmussen, who called for citizens to take the lead in Illinois to stop Governor Quinn’s proposed tax hikes.

    Want a full update, or want to get involved? Visit our Tea Party recap page here.

    If you’re in the Chicago area, you can also watch John Tillman talk about the tea parties on WTTW-TV, Channel 11, tonight at 7 pm.

    A Call for Real Economic Reform
    In case you missed it, Institute CEO John Tillman and House Republican leader Tom Cross were featured in Tuesday’s State Journal-Register. Their message was simple: the state must move quickly for real economic reform. The op-ed outlined practical, realistic, nonpartisan opportunities for reform in Illinois. Here’s an excerpt:

    Lost any friends lately? We sure have — and it’s not because of bad behavior or forgetting to send “thank you” notes. And it’s not just us. Throughout Illinois, people are losing friends, co-workers and acquaintances at record levels.

    They’re losing them to other states.

    During the past 10 years, more than 727,150 people left our state, ranking Illinois third in the nation in net outmigration…

    We’ve put together a simple, nonpartisan plan for economic reform and later this spring we’ll offer more solutions that will put Illinois back on the road to growth, job creation and prosperity.

    This isn't a political thread is it?"


    ART first and foremost FUCK you!! and your wanna bee ways, this is a statement no more or less.Next these have been going on for at least 6 years that I know of , it is just this year it got more organized and became a national event, which should have happened years ago, instead of hiding behind key boards, talking about how things should be or saying crap like we are all fucked , some of you folks should get out and support and participate in the many events across the nation to bring back are rights not only as bikers but as red blooded Americans that care what direction are country is headed. And before OBG jumps in, I give a rats ass who is in the capital, as fair as party affiliation! just as long as they get the job done for the citizens of america

    Re: not that most will care

    I try not to stir up these political threads but it ain't like he's phuggin things up. I'm a Republican and I'll concede that we left him with a huge phuggin mess including a record budget deficit. So far, and its way too early, but he's doing ok. If anyone can clean up a mess left by a bunch of old rich white guys its probably this President.

    Funny thing, is last week all the talk radio airheads were blaming our President for the pirate situation and saying he should go in and sacrifice the captain and blast the pirates out of the water. LOL
    Then when the situation ends favorably they start complaining that this will only escalate things.

    Having said that we are way overtaxed but its a bipartisan problem from having too much bureaucracy and too much government. It didn't just happen. it's one of the reasons I've been a Republican all these years but the wheels have come off the party wagon.

    We need a taxpayer advocacy group that has authority to go in and audit governmental agencies and look for budget cuts. This group would issue its report to the public with a copy to the President.

    Rex, I agree with you that we all should get out and do something, plus have our voices heard. But, like you said there are the keyboard jockeys that think they know it all and don't really know shit. Hell, I can find an article to support almost anything, does not mean it is the truth or right. I just don't pay them any attention, they are not worth it. Just shit stains of the world... LMFAO

    Re: dont make this political

    I was really put off by the way Fox News appropriated the TEA protests for its own political agenda, even making it appear it was a sponsor. John Stewart did a satire piece on The Daily Show last night ridiculing Fox News and wondering why it was not voicing similar public concern during the Bush administration.

    Hey WP, Did you vote for Ross Perot? That last sentence reminds me of his agenda.
