URGENT: Call Rep. Currie to stop corporate welfare in Illinois
Please call House Majority Leader
Representative Barbara Flynn Currie
TODAY at 773 667-0550
Tell her to kill SB 405,
THE LASALLE STREET CORPORATE WELFARE BILL
Stop Wall Street from raiding the Illinois’ Treasury
And YOUR Tax dollars!
The Illinois General Assembly is about to give $120 million of your tax dollars to the financial speculators who crashed our economy!
To stop them, you must make the call!
A proposed tax giveaway to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) and the Chicago Board of Options Exchange (CBOE)–Illinois’ Wall Street–is being proposed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Senate President John Cullerton and may be voted on by the Illinois General Assembly before Thursday, November 10!
After raising taxes on Illinois working families last year, your legislators want to put those taxes directly in the pockets of the richest 1%, instead of funding schools, infrastructure and vital services for seniors and the disabled.
The combined profit margin of these 2 corporations was higher than any of America’s top 100 corporations over the past 3 years, and they enjoyed $450 million in profits in the first quarter of 2011 alone.
We’ve had enough of the 1% stealing from the 99%!
Whether its Wall Street or LaSalle Street, enough is enough!
Don’t forget to also sign the petition here to your legislators. There is also link to find contact info for your own senator and representative.
