Hebein dismayed at lack of balanced budget and responsible leaders
A year after lawmakers hiked individual tax rates by 32 percent, Herbert Hebein, who is running for the state House in the 35th District against incumbent Rep. Frances Ann Hurley (D-Mount Greenwood), is disappointed with the lack of responsibility from state leaders.
"The state is not better off a year after the income tax hike," Hebein told South Cook News. "I thought it was a bad idea then and I still do now. Another tax hike and another failure by (House Speaker Michael) Madigan's cronies. It just took more freedom from the people of Illinois and is bringing us one step closer to socialism."
Hebein pointed out that the state now has more problems but without the benefit of a balanced budget, not to mention that the debt continues to rise and residents are still being overtaxed.
"There has been no reform except the reform on how they will tax you more. No jobs, services have declined and expect more of less; more tax and less of everything else," Hebein said. "Any tax hike is a mistake if you don't stop the spending. Taxing never works. It loses jobs and people. The only losers here are, once again and as always, the hard-working people of Illinois."
Hebein's campaign is centered around bringing reform to the state of Illinois and working on balancing of the budget.
