Illinois Protesters Demand Higher Taxes

An estimated 15,000 people turned up at the Illinois state Capitol and called for higher taxes to prevent significant budget cuts. What do you think?

"Damn right we want higher taxes! And we also want lower speed limits and condom dispensers in every elementary school in the land!"

Diane Averre • Systems Analyst


"If you all had elected me like I wanted, I would have already raised your taxes. Remember? I said that? When I was running? That I was going to raise your taxes? And then I lost terribly?"

Paul Niles • Politician

"It's Illinois; can't they just find some dead taxpayers to cover the difference?"
