Only in Illinois: Is a progressive tax more fair or just more money to waste? Debate highlights

Feb 28, 2014

This week on “Only in Illinois” we look at the biggest fiscal issue in Illinois and probably the biggest issue in the General Assembly this session: whether Illinois should amend its constitution to allow a progressive income tax system.

Rep. David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, took the anti-progressive side in our Feb. 28 debate at the Union League Club of Chicago. Rep. Christian Mitchell, D-Chicago, represented the supporters of a progressive tax. This week’s “Only in Illinois ” features highlights from the debate.

This was an excellent and informative discussion and I encourage you to watch the whole thing here.
