What can we do we about higher taxes?

To the editor:

Please inform the public what we can do…the legislature is controlled by the Speaker of the House and President of the Senate who are elected over and over by the people in the Chicago area, I feel powerless as to what to do. People who are on fixed incomes are already feeling the pinch of higher and higher taxes and it is only going to get worse if our government doesn’t seriously attempt to balance the budget and stop simply looking for additional tax increases.

[to top of second column in this letter]

More and more people are going to continue leaving the state for surrounding states if the tax increases don’t stop.
