Sample 1

Dear Editor,

We cannot afford the state government we have today. Illinois is billions of dollars in debt. This is why I support the alternative “Taxpayer Bargain” budget proposed by Senators Kyle McCarter and Dan McConchie.

Years of tax and spend policies left Illinois in the midst of a financial disaster, but the “Taxpayer Bargain” plan is different. It would truly balance the state budget by setting a spending cap of no more than the estimated revenue the state collects in a given budget year. If the cap is violated by big spenders in the Legislature, they will lose their paychecks for that budget year.

The “Taxpayer Bargain” is the only budget proposal in Springfield that puts taxpayers first. It will balance the state budget without a tax hike and without new taxes.

Year after year of mismanagement has driven people, businesses and jobs out of Illinois. If we are going to restore our state’s fiscal health and revive our economy, we need fiscal responsibility in Springfield. I urge all my friends and family to support the “Taxpayer Bargain” budget. Check out the website at www.taxpayerbargain.com.

Sincerely,

 

Sample 2

Dear Editor,

I would like to voice my support for the “Taxpayer Bargain” budget plan proposed by Senators Dan McConchie and Kyle McCarter. It would balance the state’s budget, like it should be according to our constitution. You can see the details at www.taxpayerbargain.com.

The budget plan imposes a spending cap on government and will hold lawmakers’ feet to the fire. If they violate the cap, they’ll lose their paychecks. The “Taxpayer Bargain” is a budget with no tax hike and no new taxes! It’s the only budget proposal in Springfield without punishing tax increases.

State government received more than $32 billion from taxpayers after the 2011 income tax hike. Yet, we remain billions of dollars in debt and billions of dollars more are owed on past-due bills.

Tax and spend policies have failed Illinois time and time again. Illinois is deeply in debt and without a change, we are going to leaving our children and grandchildren with a bill they cannot hope to pay. We need a truly balanced budget to restore our state’s fiscal health. I believe the “Taxpayer Bargain” will help us reach that goal.

Sincerely,

Dear Editor,

I’m writing to express my support for the “Taxpayer Bargain” budget plan proposed by State Senators Kyle McCarter and Dan McConchie.

It’s time state government lives within its means, just like my family. For too long the government spent more of our tax dollars than it took in. Considering how much the Illinois income tax was increased in 2011, the amount of overspending is staggering. State government has collected more than $32 billion from our pockets since the tax hike went into effect.

We need smaller government. We need more affordable government. We need a government that is going to be fiscally responsible with our tax dollars. What we don’t need is higher taxes or more taxes.

I support the “Taxpayer Bargain” budget plan and I want to encourage others to do the same. Go to www.taxpayerbargain.com and see the details.

Sincerely,
