EIU-UPI Organizes Response to Benefit-Cutting Pension "Reform"

EIU-UPI delivered hundreds of postcards to Senator Righter's office urging a "No" vote on the pension "reform" bill. The fight against unfair and unconstitutional cuts to pensions now moves to the courts, while the state of Illinois still faces shortfalls in revenue caused by an unfair tax system that burdens working and middle class Illinois citizens (click the link below to find out more).

Ralph Martire of the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability presented to EIU faculty on the fiscal crisis in Illinois.  The video presents important information proving that the fiscal crisis in Illinois is driven by unfair taxation policies, not pensions.
