Government conveniently has forgotten that the money they are spending comes from hard working Illinoisians. Government needs to live by the same standards our families do… We cannot spend more money than we have, and the people have said NO MORE with the failure of the progressive tax on the 2020 ballot.
Tony has not supported unbalanced state budgets, tax increases or legislator pay increases. Tony understands that decades of reckless spending, borrowing, sweeping agency funds, shortchanging education and pension payments has brought us to this place today. Failures to address inefficiencies in government agencies, projects and programs will continue to lead to bloated budgets and reduced services.
Tony firmly believes in a common sense and transparent budgeting approach. Open the budget process to all, compared to crafting behind closed doors and sending to the house and senate floor for a vote in the final hours of the legislative session.
