Letters to the Editor

Letter: Oppose constitutional amendment

To the Editor:

Millions of Illinois taxpayer dollars are being spent to place the constitutional amendment on the November general election ballot. I urge you to vote no.

If this amendment is successful, how much money will it save our state? Not one penny. This amendment is being promoted by House Speaker Michael Madigan as real tough medicine. The real tough medicine is the waste of taxpayer dollars to have this unnecessary amendment placed on the ballot.

Speaker Madigan now proposes tough medicine be administered to retirees and current workers when, in fact, he stood by and approved the state not making required payments to the pension systems. What the speaker is doing is nothing less than a giant cover-your-butt at the taxpayers' expense.

Tell the sponsors of this amendment to stop wasting our money and get to work resolving the real problems in our state. Vote no on the amendment.
