Why all the skepticism and naysayers? Isn’t this latest, greatest New Newcomb deal right in line with “Building for Quincy”? Who cares if this $89 million bond referendum (which will actually cost the taxpayers about $133 million in debt service) is nothing but a sham? Remember, it’s “For The Kids”. Fancy new buildings do such a wonderful job teaching kids. Just ask the soon-to-be enriched architects,…

I'd like to see a spreadsheet on the city's payback. Seems to me we would be better off selling the lot to the highest bidder at auction. Then we get the property tax and sales tax on any construction with out anymore investment. The city needs to stay out of the business world as their track record is not great. This property is not costing the city anything but the mowing so there is no…

Hospitals lobbying to extend income tax hike

5 months ago from thesouthern.com

From from thesouthern.com:

One of the state's major lobbying organizations joined forces Wednesday with Gov. Pat Quinn and his fellow Democrats in a campaign to make the state's temporary tax increase permanent.

The Illinois Hospital Association -- a major donor to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle -- said it is backing the governor's call to maintain the state's current income tax rates in order to avoid cuts to health care and other programs.

“This issue is not just about hospitals and health systems,” said hospital association chief Maryjane A. Wurth. “It is about schools, public safety, roads and yes, health care. Without the continuation of current tax revenues, all of these areas will be subject to severe and destructive funding cuts that will hurt Illinoisans.”

Wurth's statement echoes the unified income tax message being voiced by Quinn and top Democrats in the legislature. If the temporary income tax hike is allowed to decrease from its current 5 percent rate to 3.75 percent on January 1, there will be devastating cuts to a wide range of public services, they say.

The IHA, which represents more than 200 hospitals and nearly 50 health systems across the state, said hospitals already have absorbed hundreds of millions of dollars in cuts to Medicaid and Medicare programs.
