Quinn & Co. don’t get it

To the Editor:

Voters will be asked whether income more than $1 million should be taxed with a 3 percent surcharge to help fund schools.

How stupid does government think the people of Illinois are? Gov. Pat Quinn & Co. will try anything and everything to get extra money to pay off the billions the state owes. The man just does not get it.

Illinois does not have an income problem. Illinois has a spending problem. Whatever extra the state gets it just spends.

Come on, folks, please don’t play dumb and vote for this. Let’s show Quinn that we see what he is trying to pull, and let’s vote it down
