Democrats Propose “Comeback Agenda” to Oppose Rauner | Peoria Public Radio

Sen. Don Harmon of Oak Park brings out several Democrat oldies [and] baddies:

“We wanted to be for something. We wanted to outline a vision of where Illinois could go.”

The agenda includes a higher minimum wage . . . and a graduated income tax — where people with higher incomes pay a higher tax rate.

“A fair tax would allow us to cut taxes on most Illinois families.” [Besides, it’s what we Dems do
best.]

He sang the fair-tax song almost four years ago in a series of town halls leading up to the 2014 primary and general elections. You can read about it in my Illinois Blues: How the Ruling Party Talks to Voters (Lulu, 2016).
