Budget Axe? or LaSalle Street Tax?
Governor Rauner is proposing deep cuts to public health, human services, education, public transit, services for seniors and people with disabilities, and jobs. These cuts will greatly increase the harm to our most vulnerable neighbors, who are already suffering from an unfair economy and tax system running public services “like a business.”
The Alliance for Community Services, made up of consumers and front-line providers of public services, is working to put the HUMAN back in human services and promote ways to fund public services Illinois deserves. Politicians pretend they have no choice but to cut. Now, a growing coalition has fair and workable solutions to the revenue problem, including a small sales tax on buying and selling derivatives with a “LaSalle Street Tax.”
Francis X. Tobin, Alliance Coordinator, has been a policy advocate and community organizer for 25 years, at the local, statewide and national levels, working for affordable housing, living wages, accountable government and economic justice.
The DuPage Coffeehouse provides a time and a place for people to
regularly and respectfully share their dreams and concerns about our
community and how we can improve it for generations to come.
