43 Illinois House members claim to be Republican. http://www.ilhousegop.org/members
Obviously few Illinois Republicans are also Conservative. The votes below prove why the Republicans are in the minority in Illinois and probably always will be. Many Republicans voted with Democrats to steal more money from you. Living within your means and pensions reform (that is bleeding tax dollars) isn’t Republican ideology. Most are merely placeholders getting paid handsomely to hang out in Springfield. Voting for many Republicans in Illinois is no different than voting for Democrats.
Three bills included 20 tax and fee hikes – SB 690, SB 689, SB 1939
These bills amount to handing Springfield another $4.6 billion.
The vote on SB 690 was 87-27 http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/votehistory/101/house/10100SB0690_06012019_031000T.pdf
The vote on SB 689 was 107 to 9 http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/votehistory/101/house/10100SB0689_06012019_028000T.pdf
The vote on SB 1939 was 83-29 with one voting present (a Republican) http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/votehistory/101/house/10100SB1939_06012019_032000T.pdf
Mike Madigan voted YES on SB 689, he didn’t vote on the other two.
If you need help getting to sleep tonight, you can read the text of all 3 bills here: http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/default.asp
Dan Brady is in GOP leadership in the House
Dan Brady voted YES on all three bills
Highlighted below are some of the increased taxes and fees you will be paying:
Everytime you fill up your gas tank and pay more tax, thank Dan Brady.
When your license plate sticker costs $50 more this year, thank Dan Brady.
When internet Sales tax is higher, thank Dan Brady.
Dan Brady will never fight for REAL reforms.
Brady needs term limited now. The Illinois primary is March 17. Brady has a conservative opponent: David Paul Blumenshine.
Are you going to waste your vote sending a pretend Republican back to Springfield?
If yes, you must be planning on leaving the State. Dan Brady is why many have. People know the current Republican Party will never fight for them.
Voting for a guy who stays in office only because he shows up everywhere isn’t smart!
Please share Brady’s record!
