Feb 17, 2014

The Democratic Speaker of the Illinois House, Mike Madigan, introduced a bill at the end of January cutting the corporate tax rate in half. This will cost the state about $1.5 billion a year. A week later, his good buddy John Cullerton, the Democratic President of the Illinois Senate, announced that Chicago teachers will have to accept big cuts to their pensions because the state can’t afford to put in its share.

We can tell right there whose interests the Democrats serve!
