By Monte Larrick   |   06.07.18
Due to a U.S. Supreme Court decision, the odds have improved for legal sports betting to come to Illinois. Proponents are promising lots of tax revenue from bets on baseball, basketball, football, and other sports.
Illinois is Insolvent and It is Time to Admit It
By John Biver   |   05.29.18
Many will see the proposal outlined in my previous article as a ridiculous fantasy and politically impossible. To them I’d say that almost everything is politically impossible until it is made politically possible. Selling a plan will be hard work,...
A Big and Bold Illinois Tax Reform Plan is Needed
By John Biver   |   05.25.18
As many readers are aware, Illinois families and jobs have been fleeing the state in record numbers in recent years due to the heavy tax burden. It’s not just time for a change in Illinois tax policy, it’s time for...

Lou Lang Swings and Misses as a Constitutional Scholar
05.22.18
Deputy Majority Leader and Illinois State Representative Lou Lang (D-Skokie) was so impressed with the speech he prepared for the organized Chicago hearing on the ERA two weeks ago that he decided to record himself giving it. The hearing morphed into more of a rally than a public hearing as Lang bellowed into the microphone patently absurd things like "not passing the ERA means the Constitution does not protect women". This flies in the face of the 14th amendment and was the justification in 1973 for the one thing Lang and other leftists in Springfield champion: Abortion on demand.
Illinois Pro-Life Coalition Issues Joint Statement in Opposition to the ERA
By John Biver   |   05.12.18
If you pay just a little attention to the political fray that engulfs the country, you quickly realize that Leftists have trouble with the truth. They never disclose their real intentions when it comes to public policy. A “modest” tax...
Anti-Life Groups Pushing the Equal Rights Amendment on Illinois
By Monte Larrick   |   05.08.18
The Illinois Constitution already guarantees equal protection regardless of sex. But, that's not stopping Planned Parenthood and other anti-life organizations from trying to make Illinois the 37th state of the 38 needed to add the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
More Dumb Stuff From Springfield Swampsters
By Laurie Higgins   |   05.03.18
Our “progressive” Springfield swampsters have found another way to waste the money of taxpayers and the time of bureaucrats in bankrupt, debt-ridden Illinois: A bill to create the “Illinois Women & Girls Council” has been sponsored in the Illinois House...
A Progressive Income Tax Proposal Will Not Satisfy the Illinois Taxeaters
By John Biver   |   05.02.18
Back in the 1990s, Illinois conservatives watched as Republican governors cooperated with General Assembly Democrats to lay a foundation for our state’s current fiscal disaster. Today, as 25 percent of the state’s budget goes to paying overly-generous pensions for government...
Strict Scrutiny and the ERA – A Bad Combination for Women
04.23.18
On the surface, the Equal Rights Amendment seems quite innocent. The main text states, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be abridged or denied by the United States or any state on account of sex.”
