To the Editor:
I have never written to an editor of any newspaper up to this point. The following are items that Dick Durbin supported that we as citizens of Illinois may have forgotten.
Remember how the riverboat gambling would make our school districts solvent? Now there are restaurants but mostly bars that have gambling machines . Where has all this money gone? To the schools?
We have less people in Illinois, therefore there should be a surplus of funds but Illinoisians are up the creek, still paying higher taxes.
What about our state tax? Didn’t we start the gasoline tax and several other taxes with this in mind?
I have never had children yet I supported apparently many, due to our lawmakers. I just wonder when I’ll get a thank you card.
Our taxes continue to increase, with people leaving our state as well as businesses.
Who will pay their share? What about the sales tax on products we need to feed our families?
It won’t be Durbin but he’d vote for an increase on us residence not the big guys.
Next vote please, vote for somebody new, no matter what, as long as there is no proven issues, anyone has to be better than Dick Durbin.
