Steven Sauerberg on Tax Reform

Republican Challenger


Enact the summer holiday gas tax

Enact the summer holiday gas tax. This will not only decrease the cost of gas, but it will also decrease the cost of food and products whose prices are affected by rising gas expenses. This will enable hard-working families to keep more of their money in their wallets rather than in their gas tanks.

Make the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts permanent

With the recent volatility in both the stock and housing markets, we must cut taxes for hard-working families, individuals and seniors. The 2001 and 2003 tax cuts have saved the average Illinois taxpayer over $2,200 every year since their adoption. Making these tax cuts permanent would not only put more money in the pockets of Illinois taxpayers, but it would also add over 33,000 new jobs every year to the Illinois economy for the next six years.

Trust families with more of their own money

I think we should trust individuals and families with more of their own money. I will be a leader in protecting taxpayers.
