Repeal the 67% Quinn-Beiser Tax Increase – In the early morning hours of January 12, 2011 many of us taxpayers were at home asleep, leaving us unaware that when we awoke – our State Representative Dan Beiser had cast the deciding vote to approve Governor Quinn’s historic income tax increase. The Beiser-Quinn legislation increased our income tax 67 percent, the largest tax increase in Illinois history. Illinois remains more in debt today than ever. Kathy Smith has pledged to vote to repeal the Beiser-Quinn tax hike. If you have had enough of the Quinn-Beiser tax-and-spend policies, then join the movement to fix our broken government by signing Kathy Smith’s petition to repeal the 67% tax hike, visit http://www.smithsaysrepealthetax.com
Jobs- Illinois needs to create an environment where businesses can create jobs and stop chasing employers out of Illinois. How? Stop high taxes, fees, regulations, and lawsuits that force employers to leave Illinois. I will make Illinois competitive again.
Fiscal Responsibility –Illinois needs a balanced budget. As your state legislator, I will work hard to bring tax relief to hard working people across the state. Our current administration needs to stop wasteful spending. Illinois is unable to continue spending money it does not have. I will bring common sense solutions back to government and work toward resolving the financial burden our state faces.
Pro Life- I believe that life is precious and that families are the core of our society. I support legislation that protects and strengthens families. I oppose spending tax dollars on programs that participate in the destruction of life and families. I believe that life begins at conception, and that life is precious. I will be a voice for the unborn.
Public Service- Career politicians have ruined Illinois. It’s time for a fresh face, new ideas and a common sense voice in Springfield that demands transparency and accountability from our government. Politicians should be servants of the people. As your State Representative, I will fight for the Metro East and will not be bought by special interest groups. I grew up in an Air Force family and experienced firsthand what it means to be a true public servant. I will honor this commitment.
Gun Rights – I support the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the 2nd Amendment and Illinois needs to honor our Constitution. As your Representative, I pledge to support and protect the rights of American citizens. I ask that you support me so that I can fight for our rights.
