Never Forget, Ever Honor


At some point while you're enjoying this holiday weekend, try to remember the meaning behind this, and every, Memorial Day.

It is the
VETERAN,
not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is
the
VETERAN,
not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is
the
VETERAN,
not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is
the
VETERAN,
not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is
the
VETERAN,
not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is
the
VETERAN,
not the politician,
who has given us the right to vote.

It is
the
VETERAN who
salutes the Flag, and

It is
the
VETERAN who
serves under it.

Historically, raising taxes in a recession is a common response by states. During the recession of the early 1990s, 44 states raised taxes by a significant margin (at least 1 percent). Contrary to what some consider common wisdom, a tax increase can be good policy during a recession. Tax increases are a better option than deep spending cuts — better for both families already suffering due to the recession and state economies.

Illinois cuts will hurt our veterans in mental health care and job support.

Support a 1% tax increase and also do cuts backs that won't hurt our most vulnerable.
